      No, no. Tore it while putting on my Sport Springs ages ago. Stupid rookie/noob mistake that will never happen again.

      Soooooooo, looks like the sway bar was rubbing the axle. I temporarily wrapped a foam insulator around it and took it for a drive. Sound is gone. So ill probably be making an appointment somewhere to get it taken out. Thanks to Karl for all the help. I owe ya a beer or two.

      if your sway bar is still on the car then that is your culprit. Take it out or hook it up to the dd brackets and I bet the noise goes away.

      sorry i'm late to the party, but i knew this was the case after i read that you left it in. glad you finally figured it out!

      the sounds this car makes after installing air are so frustrating sometimes haha, i drive myself nuts.

      haha, i was the same way man, driving low scared the **** out of me haha. you SHOULD be worry free at about 50-55 fronts/30 rear for almost any road hazard (mainly any sort of raised road seam. you're front bumper definitiely won't hit it, your subframe might, but i've had good luck at that front psi). You should also be able to take most turns at that pressure in the front as well

      Haha, im settled in now at about 50/35. I'm gonna see how it goes at that height an maybe make a preset at 45/35 for roads that I'm 1000% sure are silky smooth

      What's the FTG around at DD heights (on detroits obviously)? Just wondering if most of you guys are cruising around coil height and then dropping when parked. Looks great though!

      I'll take some measurements later, but I would guess around 21.5" maybe.

      No way. I'd say 23's or 24's.
