Knocking sound coming from..

I recently put in a 4" lift and there is now a knocking sound coming from underneath the drivers seat when giving gas from a stand still. Is it something to do with my transfer case linkage?

Have you crawled under to look around. Check your linkage, trans mount, exhaust, etc. Sometime I crawl under with a beer and a straw and just look at things for awhile.

I had the same issue....put some grease on the transfer case linkage where it goes into the bracket and it went away. Hope yours is that simple

4" lift
You put in an SYE or drop the Trans Skid to accommodate that?
Sounds like your driveline angles are off, at least thats how mine sounded until I dropped the TCase skid.

Bump - To try to get a couple good ideas.

How far did you drop the skid?

The spacers are probably like an inch or so. I'm getting into it tomorrow so hopefully I get it figured out

I have the same issue on mine, It's been there since I bought it a year ago. I've looked everywhere with no luck. I decided to just drive it until something finally gives. It's a real PITA that I cannot find it
