Clicking from shackle on front driver side

I have 37" tires and noticed i get a clicking noise coming from the front shackle (front spring, Shackle towards the back) . It seems to be bolted to the frame. I had a friend move the steering wheel back and forth and i saw movment and could hear the clicking. Is this normal?

Fill out your sig and let us know what lift etc... you have.... BUT it sounds like you might need to just tighten some stuff up though the sway bar endlinks are bad about making noices like the ones you are speaking of.

Well since you have 37's i'll assume you have a lift (daa). Most of the lifts use polyurethane bushings, which are notorious for making pops, squeeks and all kinds of anoying noises.
If tightening things up like hhrecovery suggested doesn't work it may be because those poly bushings are dirty and that's when they make noise.
Some guys will use greasable shackles. Grease will attract more dust and dirt, but if you keep them lubed well the dirt can't get into them to cause the noise.
Good luck

Does it make this creaking noise when you push up and down on the front bumper? If so then you need the updated front spring isolator kit. If this sounds like it then PM me with your VIN and I will pull up the service message and get you the correct part number.
