    Would anyone know which fuse I should pull in my 2010 RRS SC to deactivate the ACE system?

    Re: Rear Clunking - Everything is tight

    Just wanted to send an update for future people searching the forum. The problem was the stabilizer bar links. They were not worn too badly, but under certain angles/speeds/bumps, they would be noisy. When the truck was lifted everything appeared completely tight. It was discovered after a technician got under the truck while it was on the ground, and a couple guys rocked the truck back and forth.

    Happy to report that everything is nice and quiet!

    Excellent, thanks for reporting back. I have a new set of end links which I have not bothered to put on, because when I had them loose for bushing replacement they felt tight as old heck. I will replace mine when it warms up outside.

    Re: Rear Clunking - Everything is tight

    Crossed my mind today while out in my RR that what probably happened was that one of the end links were not tightened properly. It happened to me after changing the front bushings. A couple of days later a clunk started that got progressively louder. Since I already had new end links, I jacked up the front wheel to begin repalcing the links. To my surprise the link nut was not tight. Not sure how that happened, but easy to see that it could since you need to lock the knuckle bolt with a Torx bit. The knuckles themselves are in some kind of hard urethane and hard to see that they could make a loud enough sound that another driver would comment on it, but a loose nut does cause a loud metal to metal knock.
    I can see how it happens. These guys like myself are using impact guns. When you remove the nut it becomes apparent that the bolt is spinning and needs to be held, but later when buttoning everything up, you use the gun and forget that the bolt needs to be restrained.

    Hey CapeCod, I think I might have the same thing happening on my '08. Did you have to replace the stabilizer bar links or just tighten them up? Thank you for your response in advance!
