Unhappy Big Bang front end

Ok kinda have a problem here I just replaced my front shocks and sway bar bushings, and now when I hit a pot hole,rail road tracks, I have a for a lack of a better term bang coming from my driver side front tire hit the same holes with the passenger side and its nice and smooth.

So I just went ahead and replaced the shock thought maybe a bad shock not the case still there could it be from the sway bar? Did I install it wrong


Using skyjacker shocks need help, Any info would help.

I know a few guys one here when installing the bislteins, mixed up the order of the washer/nut/and somethin else and it caused this. Double check your install very carefully

My best friend did this exact thing in a Jeep. It's easy to mix up the order, especially if you're working on it late or are tired.

I installed my leveling kit last weekend and couldn't get the rubber bushing between the washer and control arm back on so I went for a ride to get it to settle and had similar sounds coming from the front end. When I go home I was able to put everything back like it was supposed to be and the noise was gone.

The sleeve that goes into the bottom bushing was abnormal replaced with one from a mother shock and every thing looks good.
