Help with my suspension

Hi guys,
Since I installed the OME HD suspension for my KK, I get a weird noise from the front end every time I go over a tall speed bump, or when I offroad.

Do you have any ideas of what it could be?

I dont wanna take out the front suspension without having an idea of what to check

Thanks

What kind of noise does it sound like? Clank, clunk, squeak, rattle, chirp, meow?

It might be your upper control arm and spring making contact. After I installed my daystar lift I noticed it too.

If it's almost like a boing sound its uca contacting the springs. Depending on how high you sit you will still get it with JBA a-arms. The only way to avoid it is with the adjust-a-strut system. My 3.5" lift does it. If I hit a small bump when accelerating it sometimes does it as well.

Bmxr - the Ride with the OME set up is much better than stock right? I know Gage told me so too. I just purchased the OME 927-731's - they no longer make n132L rear shocks but something like 600069. Purchased today will probably get them professional installed next week.

It's great compared to stock. At first it'll be stuff. Give it about 3k miles and it breaks in very nicely.
