Question Pfadt ZL stage 2 installed...now clunking

I installed the Pfadt ZL stage 2 kit yesterday morning. Easy work and the results are awesome. Need to clean it up and take non-phone camera pics to give it justice.... but I've got a strange clunking/rattling on uneven road surfaces. On flat roads its silent, on hitting a lip or any sudden grade change with left/right hitting simultaneously its quiet. I'm pretty sure its up front but everything is tight. Could it be endlinks? I dunno...

check to make sure everything was re-connected, that is what happened when my car started clunking after suspension upgrades

Everything should be tightened up...not many things to be disconnected, either... now I can't get the jack under it though may need some 2x4s to drive onto and then pull the front tires off again and quadruple check. Frustrated.

okay- went to bed, thought about it and here's my question of the morning... should this be seated completely against the strut housing? (i remember it being so before)

RESOLVED.


Lower front endlinks had loosened up and the joints were popping threads. Gotta thank Rob over at Pfadt for the quick assistance!
