What is this noise?? [Video]

So I just spent $5500 fixing up this truck in August with the following:

Bilstein 5100 suspension (rear leaking after only 3 months and pretty sure the passenger front is too)
OEM steering rack & lines & tie rods
HD endlinks
Polyurethane sway bar bushings
Rotors & pads
CV axles
Rear u-joint
Carrier bearing
Moog upper ball joints (seems like the rubber is already cracking)
Spydertrax spacers
Deegan 38 tires - 285/75/16


And now this noise is happening. It still happens when I brake. It doesn't happen when it's raining or wet out. It happens mostly on uneven roads, bumps, or dips. Any ideas what this chirp/rattle noise is?

Sorry there's not exhaust or tailpipe on this truck so it's a little loud. It all rotted off the day after I got it back from the shop...

PS- Don't buy Bilstein 5100's. They are terrible.

Is your spare tire secure?

Front end, but I can't tell from what side. I'm thinking both?

Re: What is this noise?? [Video]

Iím assuming you checked but it sounds like a broken shock tower, or spring not seated. The other thought is maybe the rear mount on your front crossmember. Are both pads in place ?

Thanks for the reply. Is there a way to check the shock tower? I looked at the top of the suspension that goes above the upper control arm and the driver side the mechanic didn't even put in the upper strut bushing on the driver side and on the passanger side I can move the washer that is below the top nut. I wonder if those are the culprits?

Are there pads on the crossmember?

Re: What is this noise?? [Video]

I think that may be the problem. It should all be tight and the same parts in both sides. If you jack up the front end and un weight the suspension there should not be any rattling or loose parts from the shock/UCA.
The crossmember at the oil pan/tranny area should have two black pads where the drivetrain rests.
