BRACKETS FOR ENDLINKS?

IV GAOT AN 03 6.0 WITH A 4" SKYJACKER LIFT, WHEN I TURN (EITHER DIRECTION) SHARPLY I HEAR THIS POP, ALMOST EVERYTIME. IT HAPPENS MORE SO WHEN ITS RAINING. ONE OF MY ENDLINKS WAS BAD, SO I INSTALLED MOOG PROBLEM SOLVERS AND NO DICE, STILL POPS, ARE THERE SUPPOSED TO BE DROP BRAKETS FOR THESE? AM I EVEN IN THE RIGHT AREA ON THIS? ITS DRIVING ME NUTS.

Another thing to check if it does it while you are turning would be your track bar. It holds the axle side to side and is under a lot of pressure when turning. We have seen a lot of times where a bolt backs off in either the bar or bracket and allows some shifting under load that will cause a pop like you are describing.

Hope this helps

i would look at the track bar first, then move on to the ball joints....more than likely...with the added resistance of the tire size your ball joints are done.

I had that popping in my track bar, the bolt in the drop bracket was loose. My buddy got under the truck while I cycled the steering from lock to lock to find it.

I also found that if you hang your sway bar mounts from the BOTTOM of the frame it acts like a drop bracket.

Get under the truck, find the upper sway bar mounts and it will all make sense. Unbolt, flip, reinstall hardware.

That's the same way the 3" shackle lift worked that I used to have.
