New RC LCA install, no loud clunking ?

Have a 4" lift on my 01. I have new coils , shocks, discos, axle u joints, 4 ball joints and new track bar. I drove it with all that and the stock arms and it was fine. Just added new RC fixed lower arms and when ever I turn, park or put in reverse I hear and feel a loud clunk that feel like the LCAs are missing a damn nut on the bolt. They are tight just checked. Any thoughts or things I should check ? Or is it normal ?

Possibly a bad bushing? Did they seem tight before you installed em?

maybe check how much play you have between the bolt and the holes in the arms and in the body mounts themselves. i had a clunking in the front of mine, so i studied all my options and decided to get grade 8 washers that fit tight on the bolt; welded them to the outside of the body mounts (1 on each side-4 total washers)and re-installed all arms and bolts. got about 50miles on it since and no clunks.....did it work? can't say for sure but that's the only thing that i changed. just sayin.
