Noisey Front suspension

I have a 2016 Pro that I bought in September of 2015, at about 18,000 miles my front suspension started making all sorts of cracking type sounds. Has anyone else noticed the front suspension on their pros getting noisy? Could this be issues with bushings? It's kind of embarrassing for a new truck, it's worse when the truck rocks from left to right turning into a driveway or leaving my driveway at home.

It's your skid plate. Do a search on here. Most put a thin piece of rubber between the skid plate and the frame at each bolt location.

I've seen the fix in another thread but I can't remember what thread. If you find it the please share. Also whatever you end up doing it'd be cool if you'd share what you did and how you went about it. Thanks in advance.

It sounds like rubber washers on the mounting bolts in between the skid plate and frame.

I don't have a pro but my truck was squeaking and I thought it was the skid plate also. I tracked mine down to coming from the right front. I put my hand on the spring and kind of push the truck around a little bit, dialed it down to where the spring contacts the UCA. I blasted some lube in there and it didn't go away at first, but once it penetrated, it's smooth and quiet again. Worth a shot.

A huge thanks to this forum and this thread. I've never been much of a "wrench". Truth is I couldn't carry most members tools. I realize removing and reinstalling the skid plate may not require a ton of mechanical know how but I was apprehensive. The popping noise from the front end of my '16 pro when turning right with a slight incline was incredibly annoying. I was reluctant to start taking things off since historically re-assembling has been a challenge. I managed to follow the advice of others in this forum and it's been five days now without a sound. I hope that noise never comes back. Thanks all!
