So I'm not sure if anyone who reads this has seen my other post, but I got the front end suspension changed and aligned, but now I have a ticking from the engine. I know the only way to know for sure is to tear her apart, I'm hoping it's the rocker arms or a lifter, it won't let me upload a video, maybe it's too long. But she is a 06 Yukon XL with 226k, Im planning on replacing the lifters, rocker arms and push rods anyway, but is there anything else that could be replaced or is going to need to replaced soon? All of the pulleys except the harmonic balancer (that project is coming soon, along with front main seal) the water pump and front end suspension have all been replaced
What relevance does the suspension and alignment have to this? Did the ticking start immediately after this work was done? Before you load the parts cannon and dive deep, rule out (don't just "look at") the simple things: Exhaust manifold bolts (which you mentioned), exhaust flange bolts (manifold-to-Y-pipe joint) and ignition wires and spark plugs for tightness. I agree with the mechanic's stethoscope. For this and many other noises, it could be the best $8 you'd ever spend.
