Weird front end noises
After I installed the FRPP suspension I noticed a clunk developing from the RF, I havent thought anything from it but it seems to be getting worse. Might be a sway bar link? I'm unsure because when I shook down the suspension everything felt tight.

Next, sometimes when coming from a stop and I left off the brake I can hear something moving. Almost sounds like the springs moving around in the seat but IDK. Will also do it when I back out of my driveway and go from reverse to first. Sounds kinda like a click or pop, not very loud, but there. Any ideas? [popcorn]

now if you hit a speed bump squarely does it make the noise or is it only when one wheel is bumped?

Only the one wheel. PA roads are [:)][:)][:)][:)]ed and their repairs are a joke. Rolling down the highway I will come across a section that is all carved up and uneven on the passenger side. Thats where she really likes to talk

I had a lot of noise coming from my front end and it ended up being the lower control arms. However, you should be able to get some movement in the wheel if one had gone bad.

Yeah I'm probably gonna shake it down again but the last time I checked the ball joints they were good

Front sway bar links. I bet they're hitting the metal

Hitting what metal?
