    When going over bumps i hear a rattle and sometimes hitting bumps it hits very hard. Changed upper control arms, all ball joints idler and pitman, shocks, tire rod ends, gear box, sway bar end link. Any ideas?

    When I go over bumps I can hear my front end rattling. And sometimes it feels like the truck is just dropping down hard on the ground

    Mine does that when I do the Baja 1000 down the back 40 with it.

    Have you verified that everything you installed is still tight? What kind of small bumps? Low speed like a whoop? High speed like a pothole? Steering shaft will rattle when you hit bumps, but I have no idea what you mean about the truck dropping hard to the ground. What does the noise sound like? Sheet metal rattling? Does the truck dart when it clunks?

    Also check the shock mount bolts. I had some KYBs where the upper mount/bushing was barely larger than the stock Bilsteins and it bounced on the bolt. You could see it hitting by pushing the bumper up and down.

    I had that happen before and had to use the back end of a semi to get stopped. I never could find the time to get under the truck and check it out.
