Problem after lifting wk

Did the lift last saturday, Change all the struts too. Now when I hit potholes on the road i heard clunk on front end, everything seems tight as I torque all the bolts back to specs. When I crawl under the engine bay I notice my rear lower control arm a little bit worn, is that what causing my clunk is?

thanks any input is highly appreciated.....

tried to upload pics to, but didn't know how to.... LOL

Re: Problem after lifting wk

you can upload pics by going to the manage atatchments button under additional options when posting..

Also, there is a thread or 2 about the clunking, which btw, I get it too occassionally. Just use the search tool. top right.

Re: Problem after lifting wk

Thanks for the info on uploading pictures...

first 2 picture is the lift result and the 3rd picture is the rear lower control arm bushing...

do you guys think that was the culprit... need to add, after hitting large potholes, jeep sways a bit before and after the lift install...

sorry for the grammar, english is not my first language...

Re: Problem after lifting wk

Check the swaybar bolts, front & rear with vehicle on the ground. Sometimes they get tightened with the vehicle in the air & the angles change when the full vehicle weight is applied.
