I have a strange clicking noise in my driver side suspension. I have it narrowed down too 3 possible things that i think it mihgt be. 1) the dual rate slider rubbing on the threaded shock body, 2) spring rubbing on bump can, 3 heim joint on upper arm. if its 1 or 2 i can tdo anything about it right now but if its 3 like im thinking it is why do heim joints beggin to click. I do not hear or feal this when off raoding on mild dirt roads or stuff like that i only hear it and noticce it when driving on the pavement over minor road imperfections.

thanks for the help,
Gregg

Could also be the heim of the coilover shock. If there is play it makes a rattle/loud click kind of noise. Try putting some grease or something on the bump can, then drive around see if any got smeared off.

Are you running by-pass shocks ?? They sometimes have valves that click a lot.
