Question Rough Country 2in Lift - bad noises, any advice/input?

okay so i finallyyyy installed my rough country 2 inch lift with 1.5 inch wheel spacers (looks amazing BTW)
So, there is only one problem.... every little crack,dip,slant, big or small that i hit it makes a racket in the back as if i had a truck bed with a skateboard in the bed, and it was bouncing around etc. (basically a knocking noise) especially when i go over a drive way dip...
MY question is, Is this normal?? or is their clearly something wrong (possible shocks being to far extended or anything???) or is it loose, because im anal when it comes to my car making a racket when i drive it!!... weird thing is it drives like a dream, just makes alot of noise...

Anyone with this lift experiencing the same thing with this lift? (i hope not) because i cant stand it please tell me your lifts dont sound like this, and it can be fixed!
PLEASE CHIME IN ANYONE!!

I hate it when bolts come loose when the car is parked in the parking lot waiting to be picked up
