Freedom Top Issues

anyone else have problems with their freedom top klunking or snapping when
hitting a bump in the road?? it just started klunking after i changed the
shocks on the vehicle.

it is very annoying and every time i hit a bump it sounds like the top is
going to come into the cab??

the klunking noise is coming from both sides of the vehicle eritght at the left side and right side corners of the freedom top. is this covered under the
extended warranty? i tried to tighten the latches but nothing seems to
help and still getting the klunk whenever i hit a bump in the road?

very frustrating. thanks for any help or replies

Freedom Top Issues

this is what i did to stop the clunk... spray some orange jigaloo on every rubber seal around the freedom panel and the frame side of the Jeep, hard top, doors and windshield. when i put back the freedom panels, i rotate the lock latches first, the front windshield second and the two big screws at the end. i also greased the screws to stop any squeaks. the clunking is gone!
