NFRs2000NYC Finally found the video....this is an EXTREMELY steroid injected example of what happens to a stock JK...the torque builds up in the suspension when the brakes are applied and when released, the torque is released as well.

Braking causes it, but it's not the brakes groaning, it's the suspension (loading and unloading.)

If it's creakin and crackin while just driving, then THATs not normal.

Constant creaking would be unacceptable, but the occasional one that can be tracked down is ok. My rear was creaking after install and it was the u-bolts. They are notorious for coming loose.

SuicideSaints +1 on them tightening it on the lift. This happened to a mountain edition I saw at 4 wheel performance.

NFRs2000NYC Some creaking is normal as your control arms store torque in them and the creak is them releasing the torque. Like TrueBlueJK said, if they tightened the bolts before the suspension was under load it will creak more. SOME is normal.

Before anyone thinks Im crazy, Im looking for the video that shows this exact thing. It's a diesel JK that has so much tq, that when he revs a bit standing still and stomps on the brakes, the Jeep literally rises 3".

shadowglenn I will quiz them on that next week so maybe they should loosen and re torque on the ground I can hardly stand to drive it, it is so bad

TrueBlueJK I wonder if they torqued the bolts with the suspension under load or just tightened everything down while the jeep was on the lift.

Squeak's like crazy after new suspension lift

Had a 2.5" Rough Country suspension lift installed on my 2012 2 door Sahara a few weeks ago and the rear is so creaky squeaky it is embarrassing. I took it back to the shop that installed it and they said next week they will try to get it in and look. this lift was the shocks, spacers not the springs. It seems to be worse when the air is cold or damp, but it is always there. any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated or a redirection to current post. I did not find much in the search.

Thanks

Dave
