Strange rattle

So about a month ago I installed BMR LCA's, BMR pan hard bar and Steeda pan hard bar brace. Everything installed smoothly, but after about 200 miles I noticed a clunking sound when going over bumps so I went to recheck the torque on the bolts. I found the right rear LCA bolts to be loose (4 turns to get to 130 ft lbs on the wrench). After tightening them the sound went away...until now.

When I got back from a trip I took the car out and the sound was back...WTF, but since I am in CT at my apartment I had to bring it to the dealer for them to check (no access to ramps). They put it on the lift and checked all the bolts, but all were within spec and tight...So what could be causing this sound? Its only over bumps and the bigger the bump the louder the clunk...Help please.

Did you lube the zerk fittings? Dry bushings can cause a clunk.

Figured it out. It was a loose adjuster nut on the Panhard bar. Somehow it backed off...lol

I was going to but I don't have a heated garage and that stuff refuses to set up when it's 5* out.
