Chirping Suspension
So I've got a Rubicon Express 3.5 inch lift kit and the front end chirps every time I go over a big bump, including small speed bumps. It sounds like the tires are chirping, but it does it on dirt too. Is this normal??

Could be a few differant things,swaybar disco's making noise,warn or dry bushings/joints. Tracbar/tracbar bracket,Does it sound suspension related?

It's almost definitely suspension related. Don't have any sway bars whatsoever, and the bushing all seem ok. It almost sounds like the front pistons (can't think of the name for them) on the lift kit are chirping out air.

It could be shock valving, they can make noise but usually not enough to be noticed all the time.

The time now is 10:30 AM.
