    Lots of frontend noise(squeeking, clunking, popping and banging)

    Ok the main point is what am I missing on th parts to change list so here's what I've already replaced with new parts

    Upper control arms and ball joints
    Lower a ball joints
    Idler arm
    Sway bar end links

    What I'm going to change next
    Lower control arm bushings
    Shocks and springs
    Front spindles and lowering blocks

    The front squeaks like hell mostly the drivers side and some times when coming to a stop I get this weird pop noise, it's not the brakes checked them out with the control arm change( greased hardware, checked pad wear, ect) plus all the feedback is in the steering and my braking is always linear. Tracks kind of weird it's like it will be going straight and all of a sudden I feels like the steering loses all the feed back and the truck pulls left usually. I think it's the lca bushings as with the popping.

    As far as the shocks/springs/blocks and spindles, what do I order? I plan on getting the 2in spindles up front, what's a good spring strut combo and how much should I drop the rear?

    I'm going to be running a set of 4 spoke xterra wheels( there's a gold/champaign one floating around on white ones) there 16x8. I'm thing like 60-65 235 for tires.

    Sorry about the run ons lol punctuation goes when I'm tapping on the phone

    Sounds like ball joints and control arm bushes (most likely ball joints). Also check the radius rods and rod bushes as well. If they're tired and you only replace the ball joints and control arm bushes, it will cause premature failure. If you're going to do any suspension or steering component replacement - do the lot. You'll be a whole lot happier with the end result.

    LCA bushings are definitely going to be one of the problems. They wear out and deteriorate very commonly on these trucks.

    replace them and the strut rod bushings with urethane bushings - they won't fail like rubber ones do
