Did anyone have trouble with the fabtech front struts off a 6in lift for a 03 tacoma? Cause it seems that that there is a banging noise coming from the front end. I'm really frustrated cause I'm I've been spending a year and a half trying to find what's that noise. I don't have any idea what it is...any suggestions

is it a banging noise or a rubing sound? I had similar noise until a took a mallet to it.
When does it make the noise? turning? just going forward?

The correct term is Coilover, not strut. Just trying to save you a flaming.

Halape10, did you ever find out what was making that noise. I have the same thing happening on my 04 f150 lariat. I have the fabtech 6 inch lift and it is making that banging noise exactly the same as yours. Let me know,

First off, welcome to the forum.
Second, This is the oldest zombie thread I've seen someone bring back from the dead in a while.
Thirdly, make sure all bolts are tightened to torques specs.
Fourthly, does it do it while moving, turning, hitting speed bumps, looking at it wrong, when you scratch your dick... too many variables not to explain the symptoms further.
Lastly, you may want to check a site more specific to your vehicle:
http://www.f150forum.com/f34/6-fabtech-lift-dilema-struts-158356/

this is probably the worst site to ask about Fabtech drop bracket lift crap. We all hate them.

Have a nice day!
