Hour did you ever figure out what your front end noise was? I have the same kit and hear a popping at slow speeds when turning sharp, like whenever the front end would be in the most bind.

male bushing
RC spacer (center hole should fit inside the male bushing lip)
female bushing (should fit inside RC spacer and attach to male bushing)
washer, curved shape downwards
nut (will only be a few threads showing)

basically it it forms a "sandwich", washers will be cupped faced inwards so as to not let the bushings slide out, the nut may be hard to get started, if that's the case, just push down on it while tightening, the bushings are rubber so they will compress a bit. Let me know if you need me to send pics, pm me if you want more info, can give you my cell #
Hi, Thanks for your information I'm also going to do the install of this kit this weekend. any help would be greatly appreciated, the part to reinstall the strut is vague and leaves me nervous, do you have a pict of how you installed the bushings ? Thanks The directions reference using either the 'A' or 'B' spacers ?

For the people that installed the RC 3" kit and didn't mess with removing the actuator and vacuum tubes, did you remove the front skid plates and remove EPAS plugs ?

Thanks

I replaced it with readylift quickstrut or something. A little lower. Rides way better. No BS noise. I knew better than to get a RC product but didn't care because I have a dedicated off road vehicle. Cheers to those who have bought it and like it. Here's a video of my noise before I replaced it...

Sounded like something, a lot of things loose, but I took it to a very trusted shop for a "WTF IS LOOSE" checkup and still ended up jumping ship. Eff it.

Sorry for the most delayed response ever, but posting here for...posterity or whatever the word would be. Best part of the readylift setup was not having to disassemble the factory struts. That alone is worth it, even if it's a hair lower. Oh yea, was great to ditch the wheel spacers..

^^^^^Damn. That sounds brutal. 12k miles on my 3” RC kit, zero issues. Sorry you had a bad experience.
