so yesterday i installed my new UCA's from total chaos. After driving today, upon acceleration i could hear a very low almost knocking sound coming from what seemed like the front driver side. has anyone experienced this with new UCA's?

Can you post photos of the setup? Any close-ups of the suspension is appreciated. Happy to take a look and make sure everything looks the way it should. Also replied to your other thread :)

After my SPC lr UCAs and 5100 with 888 coils I have a light knock when I brake or accelerate, on turns too, sounds like the uca or coil everytime it moves and flexes. Annoying as all hell, haven't found a fix yet.

I had Toyota align my truck... mistake because the caster is hella low and there was lots of knocks n creaks as if something was loose, took it back and they claim nothing was but like 80% of the knocks went away, still the coil and or the uca creak/ knock but maybe they just need to be broken in more or lubed up lol

Did you you tighten under load, and lube before tightening?

Tightened with no load, and lubed everything before hand

Update: alignment fixed all the issues
Loosen and re tighten under neutral load. It will save your bushings . Glad issue is fixed

It’s been 100 miles since so I went ahead and greased them by loosening the through bolt. Everything was fine and torques held
