So I had to learn the hard way, well....not really the hard way but If my T bars weren't cranked so hard. Since my new SL install I've been hearing a knocking noise in my front end while traveling over minor bumps and some cornering, plus my ride is stiff as ****. So I called my source and he told me the distance between bump stop on the LCA and the frame should be 1/2 to 3/4". So during my lunch break I went to investigate and measure. I was at 1 3/4"!!!!!!! Now since I'm not mechanically inclined I didn't feel like such an *** and I'm figuring that even with stage 5 poly bushings on the UCA's and they are tight this is where my knocking noise is coming from. What my source tells me is that I need to alliviate the pressure on my T bars and nose down an inch, I'm hoping this does the trick to eliminate the knocking noise and not make me feel like I'm "hittin switches" while going over the slightest bump. That being said, I'm taking the ride back to the shop tomorrow to adjust my T bars and re-allign. Please advise for input and I'll repost tomorrow when I'm done to give you guys an update. This can be avoided for anyone doing T bar adjustments and front suspension upgrades, out.
