    My rig would hit the ground with that on.
    I have 24 /7 road service that I have been paying for years now.
    Something happens, just pick up the cell and say "pick me up boys".
    Seriously though, this noise came from the wheel well.
    I have been under this car a dozen times looking for telltale anything with no luck.
    The spare does work it's way loose after time.
    The noise is gone and I got rid of 20 pounds or so of dead weight. LOL
    I'll check out my spare and jack tomorrow. I've been going nuts trying to find a knocking sound coming from the passenger rear wheel well area. At first I thought it was the t-top and tonight I was able to replicate the sound by pushing the rear seat backrest side to side.
    The sound was more noticeable before I put the SFC's on. It very well could be the jack.

    Sounds like your exhaust hitting the upper pan hard bar support. I would check that also.

    My noise was different; almost like a missing axle bumper.
    Anyway, if it was exhaust pipe interference, you should be able to see deformation / damage at the pipe.

    what springs are you running and for how long some brands like to sag over time and if its new it may just be setteling into place and that will sent the rear off center

    I have a set of Stranos barely a year old... they are fine.
    One thing to note; after I pulled the spare and adjusted the PHB to the 1/16th inch, the noise is gone.
    Go figure.

    My response was to the person I quoted. I had interference between my exhaust and upper pan hard bar support and there was zero deformation to the pipe. Like you mentioned though, there was just a little shiny mark where there was metal to metal contact on the exhaust. It was barely contacting.

    Josh is correct. I've had my Strano's on a few years now and my ride height has stayed the same. I have them complimented with Koni 4/4's

    Checked the underside tonight as I think I either have a posi issue or a u joint starting to go out.
    Anyway, the PHB is solid with no measurable distance change in the wheel to fender dimentions.
    Next up is the clutch as I have components shipping in from all over this country.
    BTW, Lakewood u joints are damn expensive compared to all the rest.
