So, with the amazing help of Erik, we got the SYE/CV DS installed and a new set up upper CAs and rear Track bar (Adj.).. Again, I couldn't be happier with the SYE/CV, it's amazing!!

I have this knocking in the rear, so I assumed it was the Rear Tbar and Gas Tank Skid knocking.. I didn't use a relocation bracket and the Tbar fits nicely.. However, it is knocking into the top passenger side corner of the stock gas tank skid. At rest, they are about 1/8th" or smaller apart, so it makes sense that they would knock. Is this anything to worry about? I could care less about the knock.. TIA

If you're not concerned with the actual knock, I wouldn't worry about it. Depending on how and where it's hitting, we could clearance the skid a bit to give you more room. The other option is to loosen the nuts holding the skid on and try to adjust it's position to give you more clearance. I know Kilby's skid compensates for the clearance issue by shifting the tank to the passenger side a bit and have cutouts in the skid to provide even more clearance.

I had the same problem when I installed my lift. I have stock gas tank skid, stock trackbar and OME relocation bracket. I noticed this before I lowered my rig off the jackstands. There is a corner where the tank skid bends that was barely touching the trackbar. A few well placed hits to that corner of the skid with Mr. BFH took care of it and no more problem.
