Something in suspension making a noise, video inside, help!

Hey guys, here's the video of what my car is doing when going over bumps. Holy hell is it annoying and I dont know what it is. I've had pfadt springs and sways on for about 3 months now and haven't had a peep out of them, this just started probably a week ago. Any thoughts as to what it could be?

Okay guys, got it solved. Been battling for awhile. Turns out one of the end link bolts had loosened up. I have stock endlinks and pfadt sway bar. I tightened the bolts down, and the noise stopped. Anyone else ran into this?

I love it when the fix is easy. Yeah, I've heard about a loose endlink making noise several times here on the forum.

Endlinks are almost always the culprit. The nuts used to secure endlinks from the factory have some resistance, quench, designed in. Every time you take the nut off it loses some of the quench that is supposed to prevent them from coming loose. At Pedders, we LocTite almost every nut we touch in the suspension or replace them with new nuts. If the problem returns, get fresh nuts or reinstall them with LocTite.

You should always replace locking style nuts. Because they loose some of there prevailing torque after the first time used.

LOL....I was going to suggest you get a room instead using your car.
