Mines doin the same thing. Some have told me they need to be broken in. Others say to check the track bar or something else could be wrong.
Im gunna drive mine around today and check it later and see if i can find any problems

Could be the sway bar links making noise to. Did you upgrade them at all with quick discos or are they factory?

Make sure they are sitting properly in the spring buckets on the axle and that they aren't rubbing anything. Mine occasionally will make some noise under extreme compression, and I found that its rubbing on my track bar bracket.

What kind of noise is it because coils shouldn't make noise.
