All bushings are good, ball joints, tie rods, shock bushings everything looks good. I have the spring pre load about half way on the shocks cause they are soft which is what I wanted. And I guess popping may not be the best description it's kinda like the shock or the a arms are fully extended. Not allowing any more travel. I'm sure they are factory arms. Not long travel. If I take the shock loose the a arm goes down further. So I'm assuming the shocks are fully extended. Shocks were reworked by JET suspension.
