Exclamation Lifted 2 inches crazy noise

I lifted it 2 inches with maxtrac coils and shocks basically leveled it and I did my lower ball joints as well. Now when I hit like major bumps likes speed bumps I get this horrible metal popping sounds from the front end like if you pushed in a really big Snapple lid. I checked out all my work from previous and it looks solid. Control arm doesn't have a lot of play but I think it's the original. And my torsion bars look fine as well. It's coming from both sides. Anybody deal with this? I'm stumped. Hope it hasn't been posted before either. I tried searching no luck. Also first time poster



It's a 2005 2.3 2wd with the coils and rancho r5000s 1 inch block in the back with the same ranchos 103,000

You don't have torsion bars....my guess is upper ball joints.

Upper ball joints would be my guess as well. Did you get an alignment after your springs?
