Still having suspension problems!!!

so i have been having a horrible popping clunking sound coming from my front suspension ever since i got my new springs and sruts installed, took it to the dealer to have them check it out. They said the shop that installed them did not tighten anything up and i was basically ridding on my tires (whatever thats suppose to mean) but anyway they tightened everything up and i still have the same horrible clunking, it wasnt very bad when i first got it back from the dealer, but tonight i drove it and it was bad!!
anything i should tell them to look at when i take it back to them next week.......and my rear right tire alignment dont seem right!! and LOL at the mechanics spelling f*cking retards

Re: Still having suspension problems!!!

Raddle?!?! That's comical. Did they check the ball joint to make sure it's not jacked? How many miles are on your Jeep? What suspension did you put in?

Re: Still having suspension problems!!!

if they didnt yank the strut all the way out, i would suspect the top nut wasnt tightened all the way down the fiorst time. and ai dont think you could do it withoutn the strut out.

plus on their bill, it says it still needs something?? third item??

Re: Still having suspension problems!!!

yeah i dont think they even looked at the strut or touched it...... as for the 3) on my sheet they suggested taken it back to the shop that installed them, but im not letting them guys touch my jeep anymore, they were rude and obviously didnt do what they were suppose to do

Re: Still having suspension problems!!!

your allignment is not that off plus for the rear there's not much you can except for the toe ... however the clunk noise might be from what Rob suggested life your hood up and check where the strut mount is and see if those bolts are tight enough ...

Also it can be your sway bar bushings or even the links ... however I do really suggest that you have someone take it all apart the strut and shocks and re install them properly using the proper torque specifications

that always helps

other than that can't think of much ... there is one more thing though ... the upper control arm is in the way when your installing the front struts they might have messed with that

I've said that a couple of times as well ... trust me it happens ... quick question have you upgraded your sway bars?

If you haven't it's a must mine are shot and the car is not stable anymore so would advise to do that as well
