Default Jakes LT lift creaking

Just finished up installing a jakes long travel lift on my ezgo txt yesterday and have been loving it ever since. The ride is excellent, much better handling at 25 mph than the factory ezgo axle lift.

My question is, has anyone experienced the front lift squeaking/ creaking during slow speeds off road?

I've checked and everything is tight, maybe just needs to break in and settle??

I don't have the LT, rather a arm style. I had the same thing on the front end. Lube the bushings up and it will go away.

Not bad, but I run the shocks a little on the stiff side. Also you gain a couple inches of width with this kit. Installed 1.5" wheel spacers on the rear and they still aren't as wide as the front

Update.

As of today ALL noise from the front end suspension is GONE! Guess just needed to break in,
Love it. :)
