RRO front end chatter

I did a search, and came up with someone who described a "creaking" sound coming from the front after a RRO install, with swaybar bushings as a possible cause ...I have had a rattle or chatter type sound coming from the front when going over bumps since my RRO install...wondering if anybody else has experienced this with the RRO lift? I believe it is somehow a cause of the lift...any suggestions?...on highway great..but on anything else it is driving me nuts...wondering if this is one of those symptoms of the RRO lift, and maybe I should look at the OME lift...or an easy fix....thanks...

I had a similar noise after having a local 4x4 shop install my RRO lift back in March. I came back to the store and they checked/tightened everything for free. They said the front sway bar was loose. The noise is gone and I hope yours is an easy fix too.

Re: RRO front end chatter

I have similar noises with mine. I installed an OME HD lift. What was your noise from?
