    Suspension popping/clunking warranty denied

    So, i took my truck in for popping from the suspension. I looked online and alot people had that issue answer there's is a tsb out for the body mount.

    The dealer called and said that they have tightened everything and nothing was loose. They said the popping noise is still there. They're saying that my 2.5 leveling is the cause of it. Before they can go further with the body mounts, I have to remove the leveling kit.

    Really?

    Front cab body mounts. My 2014 2500 mega had a clunk under the passenger floor board. New version body mounts fixed the broblem.

    This is a standard response from the dealer .

    Is the 2.5" Rough Country level a front spacer install?

    Yes just a 2.5 spacer. They said the geometry is off, that'd why it's popping.

    Sorry for late responce, I had RC spacers at 2.5, never had popping issues, I would say your UCA are under stress..

    Sorry didn't realize your had a 2500, on tapatalk... 2.5 really shouldn't throw geometry off... my guess, was installed incorrectly?
