Full Traction 3'' econo, making noises?

Just wanted to know if anyone that has installed a FT 3'' kit to there jeep thats having issues. Overall I'm happy with the lift, got almost 4'' in hight and a years has gone by. However since I have put the lift on I get a noise from under the jeep. Not sure if it is coming from the rear or under the drivers side by the TC. I have a 05 with the six speed. Just can't find the where the noise is coming from.

I have the lift. After you put in the T-case drop remember to adjust the T-case shift linkage. The instructions suck, so many people forget to do it and burn up the shift fork. The new front disconects also bump against the frame sometimes and make noise. I installed an advanced adapters T-case shift linkage relocation bracket that makes it shift better than stock for $50. It's a great addition.

Hey thanks Joe,
I'll look into that soon, bye the way which shocks did you use with the kit?
I have the basic FT shocks, they are a bit hard, I just might have to upgrade to OME's down the road.

I've got the FT kit. I haven't heard any strange noises at all, but it's only been installed for a couple of months and really hasn't had a chance for anything to wear out. I'm really happy with it so far. I'm running Old Man Emu Long Travel shocks, so it rides like a dream. Here's mine........

I don't have a Full traction lift but I am wondering what kind of noise you are hearing.I have a poping noise in front of mine that has been there since I put in the lift.I thought at first I had something wrong but started going over everything ,stabilizer,discos,trac bar bolts,and finally found the source.As my suspension moves up and down it rubs the steel bumpstop cup.It has a lip on it were the rubber goes in and the inside of the spring rubs it causeing the spring to pop once in a while.I have a cure for it but have been to lazy to put in.I have the bumpstop exstintion between the cup and the perch now but I got some longer rubber bumpstops and will move the extention block to the bottom of the spring perch to put the cup back in the factory location and that should fix the problem but anyway what kind of bumpstops did you get.

I like for it to shine even thought it is muddy most of the time!
