Hey everyone! I got a 2.5 inch RC lift on my 2018 JLU with 33s... don’t plan on doing much off roading at all... any ways... I’ve noticed since the install that when I go over bumps at a faster speed that’s there is a big “clunk” from my hind end. Anyone dealt with this?

I had the same issue after my lift. Sounded like the back end was going to fall off. It turned out the be the bolts that go through the new sway bar links were a bit shorter than factory so the nut kept coming loose. I removed the bolt that came with the new lift and put the factory back on which was longer.

I would advise to check those nuts and see if they are loose(you could spin my with your fingers). No more clunking after they were tightened down good

You probabaly need to re-torque all your bolts. Marking them with a paint pen would indicate if they were backing off.
