Strange noises, more of a clunk, coming from the rear of mine at first. I rechecked torque on everything, nothing there. Two weeks later no more noises. I figure it was the springs settling back in to their sweet spot. Someone in the other forum had the same thing, doesn't appear to be a concern.

Yeah, I figure we would get the car back and tighten up everything. The alignment shop is still tinkering with it. Going to pick it up in a little bit. I'm thinking we are going to try and find some take offs from another Jeep for wheels and tires.
