Default Suspension, pics, and funny story.......

Do you get alot more noise out of your system now? I mean I have UCA, LCA, LCA relocation brackets, Tociko adjustables (set to medium), Steeda Ultralites, panhard bar,and my car makes noise over every bump now. Is that pretty much the price you pay for having good suspension, or is something wrong? I mean I get noise out of the front AND the back it seems like!!

I have done just about everything to my suspension. I don't get any noise on the front. I did change everything on the rear to heim joints. I have me D Specs at 3-4 from hard. It is definitely louder and I get some clunk and rattles from the heim joints over uneven pavement. I have taken everything off and checked tightness, binding, etc. and it pretty much remains the same. If you hear popping, then something is definitely wrong.

I just changed my suspension and get highly annoying clunking noises up front and squeaky noises from rear.

Clunking noises may be from worn ball joint on front control arms or from loose endlinks on sway bar. Tonight I am jacking th car up to inspect and will grease everything up to see if I can fix.

Eeeeerttt!

I get a fair amount of creaking from the rear suspension when it's cold out (say, below 50 degrees or so)... but for the majority of the year I don't notice much difference from stock and your mods seem similar to mine.

I have Tokicos, UCA, LCA, Eibach Pro springs, and Panhard bar and don't have any noise even going over bumps.

I put on my d-spec's last week and the car is as smooth as can be. No noise's or rattles and a million times better than the ford performance shocks.
