    based off what i know. the only difference between my lift and if you buy the full kit is a crossmember and depending on the kit you get some new a arms i guess. my lift consists of new spindles and i had already installed a leveling kit. i keep hearing these noises from the front suspension. not sure if its because the spindles are causing a lot of pressure on arms and bushings and joints...what are yalls thoughts?

    Any video of the noise? Do you have a GoPro you can mount up by it?

    no go pro. no video. 3" level + 3.5" spindle lift, 4" block for rear. its 4x2. i hear it mainly on cornering at times could be something binding up. not to sure i check over bolts and ive sprayed lithium grease to see maybe something rubbing. but everything seems ok. my brother in law and i did this ourselves. it seemed super easy to do. shouldnt have taken us long. it took two days. ive always been paranoid about. contemplating getting the guy thats going to do my tires who also does suspension to maybe replace lift or swap some parts add a crossmember or something. not sure what to do.
