Had 3.5" Rough Country kit installed by a shop. Idler arm went bad in less than 300 miles. Dealer did replace it under warranty since the truck only has 2200 miles on it, but they will not warranty anything suspension related from now on because of the lift, I understand that. So, maybe it was a just bad part from the factory, but I'm starting to hear a slight rattle again with only a couple hundred miles after new idler arm was installed, I'm thinking it may be going bad again. I don't have the front cranked all the way up so it rides pretty decent and it was aligned. It has a slight bump steer, but I expect that with a torsion lift. I expect that tie rods may wear a little prematurely with the lift, but never expected the idler arm to go bad, especially in this short time and never off road. Does anyone have any idea if something with the lift could be wiping the idler arm out this fast? Thanks
I'll get some pics later on. I don't understand why it would eat up idler arm. There are thousands of trucks on the road with this kit and the only thing I've heard is tied rods and ball joints going bad over time, but nothing wiping out almost immediately.
