Quick question about the RRO 2.5

I just installed my kit yesterday, but now everytime I go through bumps on the road it doesnt sound the same as it used to when i didnt have the kit installed. Did any of you who installed it noticed it ?

Re: Quick question about the RRO 2.5

What does it sound like? I was planning on RRO lifting my '11 Laredo X.

Re: Quick question about the RRO 2.5

I seem to recall a bit of a change after I installed mine, nothing I thought to worry about though. Definitely noticed some extra noises every once in a while but I'm also running 1.5" spacers and 33" Duratracs.

Re: Quick question about the RRO 2.5

Could it be , wheel travel ?? , after I installed a 2" torsion lift on my Expedition I noticed the same noise , I think the suspension ,shocks , bottomed out, , I would only hear the noise as the vehicle was on the upward travel ,as if I was was going over a speed bump or a different elevation in the road way, again this was in an Expedition not my GC , just giving my opinion

Yea that's exactly what it sounds like. It's only when I go over bumps that I hear the noise. It defiantly sounds like its coming from the shocks. Is it something I should worry about ?

Re: Quick question about the RRO 2.5

I would definitely look into it maybe the shocks are too short ???? I not sure,
Wonder if anyone else is having the same problem??

Yeah sorry about not getting back haven't had a chance. I took it to the dealership to have them check the sound out, they came to find out that the guy I had to install it for me had only hand tighten the screw to where the spacer sits. So they went ahead and tighten it up and WALA sound was gone.

Re: Quick question about the RRO 2.5

Glade to hear it was that simple ! Just out of curiosity did the dealer frown upon the leveling kit ???, cant wait to install mine but I cant help but think about the warrantee issues
