You guys should check out my thread for my truck.......my dad purchased a Silverado with 22k miles and it rattled. Mostly at slower speeds and on rougher terrain. I borrowed his truck one day and had to pull over on the side of the road cause I am really OCD and couldnt take it. I ended up deciding that it was coming from inside the cab to my surprise........I thought for sure it was a muffled sound from the exterior. Turns out, there is a metal belly pan that covers the steering shaft. All like 6 screws (with washers) were loose......I mean LOOSE! I tightened them up and good to go. Fast forward a couple years.......I purchased a 2015 GMC Sierra 40k miles. Exact same noise, exact same issue. Tightened the bolts, no more rattle. There are some pics on my thread if you wanna check them out. Should note.......One truck was manufactured in Canada, and the other Mexico

What’s the name of the thread

I replaced my struts the other day and now I have a squeak on the driver side but it’s only when I turn the wheel left and I’m stationary

If you are having a rattle from the suspension after you installed a block, try tightening the nut on top of the shock assembly while you have the truck on the ground. The nut is accessible through the engine bay.

I have a 2018 sierra 1500  z71 with 3000 miles on it. I added a 2.5'' motofab spacer under shock. now i have a noise coming from driver side front end. I see some other forums on here about it but no sure answers. Has anyone figured this out? If so please let me know the noise drives me crazy!!!! Mostly happens when going over several bumps at mostly slower speeds or on gravel roads. sounds like something is loose but everything is tight. 

 

When I had my Bilstein 5100 leveling shocks installed, the mechanic told me he used the original nuts for the shock mount rather than the nuts that came with the Bilsteins because the originals had a larger surface area to make contact with the frame when tightened down.  From what I read, a lot of the noises people on here report are due to the shock moving around as the vehicle weight shifts when driving and this issue popped up following a level kit install.  Did you use the original hardware when you installed your leveling kit?

Loosen all the strut bolts slightly on ground and use a torque wrench to tighten them to spec. That fixed mine. I thought I had put enough grunt on them, but nope the torque wrench don’t lie.

 

Unless it’s broken.
