Icon/Truck?

I put a 2.5" leveling kit on the truck. All is fine except when I hit something like a speed bump or dip in a road I get a LOUD quick squeak come out from under the front end. I know it could be anything but anybody got any ideas? I've looked around but didn't see anything that looked out of the norm. Figure enough people have these kits maybe someone has experienced this before. Thanks for any help.

it might just be metal on metal noise grinding when you hit a bump. i dont know if you kit came with it, but i know some of them have a polyeurathane disk that goes on top of the spacer to eliminate noise.

What spacer? It's been awhile but the front was shocks and springs. Am I missing something?

here's the leveling kit i just bought. its just the 2" spacers. the first pic is the spacer, and the next one is what goes in between the metal to eliminate noise.

The Icon kit was nothing like that. It had new springs and shocks up front. No spacers like that.

i would say springs might be settling or my be your track bar is hitting the cross member. I know when i did my leveling i had to turn my track bar a little because of the cross member. and when i did the 4.5 the springs made a little noise for a while.

Okay, I think I've found it. It looks like my adjustable pan rod bar is rubbing the cross member. Problem is, it doesn't look as if I can really move either one. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks
