I’m curious about this as well. I start my truck up in the morning and back up out of the garage and with the windows up there is a very subtle “clunk” or something it’s not a hard clunk but just like a shifting noise. I everything is torqued to spec while it was on the ground and not in the air.

Yep, I hear it at slow speeds, forward and reverse.

I"ve had Icons @option 1 w/1 inch SDHQ drop shackles on for a few weeks, I'm just under 43" rear and around 41.5" front (2.25" collars), hoping the back settles down some more as I'd prefer a level rake. As far as any noises, I get a slight noise while backing out of the driveway into the road, but nothing annoying or while under normal driving or even over speed bumps.....my .02.

Ya it's not annoying really at speed or anything it's just "there". Not being picky here but be great if it was silent back there.

Has anyone had their LIVEVALVE shocks re-calibrated after doing these suspension changes? Apparently the rear shocks can make this odd noise we are describing and once they are re-calibrated they are in their proper zone?

never heard of that and I never had my fronts or rears recalibrated yet. I have an appt with the dealer coming up soon since my Live valve main module is bad

Take a look at this fro recalibration of live valve positions: https://www.fordraptorforum.com/thr...calibration-forscan.82737/page-6#post-1620236


My set creaks and pops like its an old 1960 truck.

I might have to rebuild this with isolator pads and liners. And most likely add a leaf spring keeper since one side has misaligned springs already.

There is also, as far as i can tell, a small w-bend going on on the drivers side. it may be my eyes but i have to check those later.

Oh, and the u-bolts. Its been months and i still have to torque the u-bolts on the drivers side.

At this point, i'd recommend that people get Deaver Springs instead.

I second. Buying Icon’s was the single worst car/motorcycle experience I’ve ever had. Garbage quality, shit quality control, dumb techs, and bad customer service. Go Deavers.
