So after a few hundred miles with 5100's and leveling kit, I seemed to have developed a clunk rattle that appears to be coming from the front when going over sharp bumps or dips. I have noticed it getting progressively worse and really annoying. I have tried retorquing and smacking everything with a dead blow to try and replicate the sound while I'm under it with no success. So the only thing I have left to check is the strut rod pin and nut. I found a few threads online about this and hope it will help. Now my concern is can I loosen the nut while the strut is installed without any danger? Just seems a bit odd but I thought I saw folks take the nut off completely add washers plus locktite and sometimes adding another nut. Sorry for the rambling, I tend to post late when I'm really tired lol.
Motofab kit (2.5 front+2 back) 5100 fronts(lowest setting) and back, rough country forged upper a arms, 285/70/17 on factory 17. Rides way better than anticipated with just a slight rub on the upper arm on full lock. Now just need a side steps cause my wife and kids have to "climb" in. ..whiners lol.

No love for stand alone afm disabler? I would like a tuner eventually but just not ready yet. I drive most of the time in m5 around town and its great. Just wish it wouldn't kick in to v4 while in 6th.
Has it been determined which afm (Range or Diablo) is best? I've read that one is can be updated online and the other needs to be sent in. I don't want to mess with a tune just yet as I purchased the extended bumper to bumper warranty and don't want any crap from the dealer.
These coils are no joke. My strut compressors barely fit the springs and really taxed them as well as bent the bolts, not worth the risk. So just took them to my local pepboys, $40 and I'm still alive lol.
I'm doing mine myself. Around here it $60-100 for a shop to swap the springs for me. Harbor freight has a tool that appears to be fairly safe. Figured if one is good two is better! Part # 63262.
So far I'm digging this truck but the exhaust is kinda of bugging me a bit (its too quiet). I have replaced the stock muffler with a dynomax ultraflow 17233 and removed the valve. I does sound a bit better but not quite what I was expecting. Has anyone tried replacing the resonator? I don't want to get rid of it. Just thought maybe going with a smaller more free flowing unit might help. Don't really wont to go with a new exhaust system, not looking for obnoxiously loud either. It cracks me up that the engine ticking is more pronounced than the exhaust at idle LOL.
