Default bump stops

ok so yesterday i finally got tired of this wierd noise ive had under the front of my truck so i crawled under the truck started checkin for what could be the problem so before i went to bed i went to back to the truck and grabed the bump stops and of course loose they were a couple of turns from fallin off so i took them all the way off and used sum locktite and crancked them down as tight as possible and now no more noise. what are the chances that my 2007s STOCK bump stops were about to fall off!!?????!!!??? how does this happen its a brand new truck almost only got like 59,xxx miles on it ive taken great care of the truck for the year or longer that ive had it and ive put over 20,000+ miles on it. what do yall think coulda caused them to almost fall off

Sounds like a rare incident. Maybe the truck was assembled on a monday or a friday.
