Default LCA clunk

Hey guys

Installed some upr adjustable lcas two weekends ago and have been getting a clunk when I go over bumps (speed bumps, potholes, etc.). I researched this and the only things I could find was to seat my springs differently and load the suspension when I torque down the bolts. Any other suggestions?

Did you replace the stock LCA's with these, or were they aftermarket LCA's before these?

sounds like the spring isnt seated correctly or the bushings arent tight against the bolt. i replaced mine with j&m lca and no issues and didnt have the suspension loaded when i tightned

I replaced the stock ones.

The spring pig tail is supposed to be pointed towards the drivers side correct?
