Clank from down under.

I have a 05 Rocky Mountain wit a 3'' FT lift. have had that lift on for about a year. I get a clanking or metal binding noise when starting out in 1st or sometimes in 2nd gear. Have the six spead manual trans. Any jeepers out there with the same issue? I have replace rear track bar bushings and the crapy front discos that came with the kit. Everything seems to be tight, but still get the noise.

Where's the noise coming from?

I'd check the entire length of the exhaust system. Sometimes just starting is enough to make it rub or rattle against something. (maybe)
Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may.
