    thanks for the reply. I will probably put new struts and rear shocks and see if that helps. Do you guys recommend the belltech sp? I want to keep ride as comfortable as possible. It doesn’t ride bad now just the knocking or cluttering noise at low speed is driving me crazy. It’s like there’s play in it somewhere. Yes I know the 20s were a lot more forgiving and the 24s will change ride quality but it isn’t that bad once I can get rid of this noisy front end. I didn’t do rear travel mod. I don’t tow with it and drive an easy 6 mile commute to work. Unfortunately that’s when I hear this noise. On highway I don’t hear it and it feels pretty smooth.

    +1 what @STORMIN08 said...

    Failing that.... I had a Lincoln Navigator with the same symptoms. Rode quiet on the highway, smooth roads, etc... Rattled like a MoFo on bumpy roads, when going over speed bumps/humps, etc.... Turned out to be a broken swaybar end-link. Just something else to consider.

    thanks! I have an appointment for Friday to take it to a well known reputable shop to look it all over for me and get it aligned. I let the wheel/tire shop do the suspension and he avoids my calls and is always “busy” so better to cut my loss and move on. I don’t have time to deal with shops that give you no after sale support.

    Finally got around to taking a few shots of the Esky. Here it is guys, just had her paint corrected and ceramic coated lowered with 2/4 belltech lowering kit ( need to lower the rear about a half inch) 26” forgiato ECL wheels, blacked out all the chrome. Also have the corsa full exhaust with afe CAI. Future mods are a tune by (HP or Black Bear) some sway bars and wilwood big brake kit. [​IMG]

    Can you post some more specs on your wheels?
    Wheels width's front and rear?
    Looks like you've got a lot more concave in the rear.
    Are you using the same length lug nuts front and rear? They're more recessed on the fronts by far.

    Looks really clean.

    PSA: Thank you for not putting black wheels on your black escalade.

    Thank you CMoore711 the wheels really set it up nice and I definitely didn’t want black wheels. They are 26x10 concave staggered don’t remember the offset but I can check later in tonight. The rear lip is 5” and the front is 3”. The lug nuts are all the same size but since the rear are more concaved you can see them stick out more.
