    I sometimes get a loud pop as the suspension articulates. It seems to be coming from the rear but i'm not sure. Nothing seems to be loose, all suspension bolts are tight and all bushing appear to be intact (including all control arm, panhard, swaybar and shock bushings). Shocks also appear fine. Anyone have any suggestions?
    thanks, aaron

    It was never REALLY gone. Woody just hid it from you so the rest of us could have a #6 now and then :flipoff2:

    Check the busings on the swaybar - yes, I know you say they are there, but are they in the right place? I bent the pin where the sway bar goes up. Pushed the bushings out of whack and sounded like crap every time I got any action at all. 10 minute $5 fix.

    Don't have a pic, but someone should be able to 'splain better.
