RRO Lift - Front End Rattle
 
I installed the RRO lift on my 2012 last June and there has been a pretty consistant rattle coming from the front right suspension. I've re-torqued everything and even brought it to a Jeep dealership who billed me 2 hours labor but couldnt find the cause. It almost sounds like the spacer is loose but I know thats not the case. Has anyone experienced anything like this or have any ideas? I spoke with RRO and they didnt have any suggestions. Thanks.

I experienced something similar on my 2010 WK with the RRO lift. I would hear a loose sounding rattle when I would hit bumps. I originally upgraded to Bilstein HD's when I first lifted it, but just recently i went back to the stock front shocks and the rattle has gotten less severe. It is still there just allot less noticeable, I think it has something to do with the changed geometry of the suspension and the way the loads get transferred through the front end. I hope this helps...:cool:

Right on, thanks. The fact that its only coming from the right side and not both has got me guessing. I really dont want to take it all apart again but probably will as its beginning to drive me crazy.

I installed the RRO leveling kit on our 2011 4x4 last year and recently we had the same rattle coming from the front right as well. I took the tire off to inspect and everything looked alright and tight. I put the tire back on and torqued the lugs to spec and the noise seems to be gone. Weird that it is just that one side.

We have a 2014 Ecodiesel 4x4 on order right now and I am having some second thoughts on putting another leveling kit on it.
