need help ifs

I finished the TCI-Custom ifs. install on my 56 chevy p/up. Hopped on the frame and gave it a bounce. Down is smooth, when it comes back up I hear a knock or a clunk!!I checked every bolt and movable part.With the shocks off, the suspension moves freely up and down nothing is loose and I can't see any interference anywhere.With the shocks back on I put a stethoscope on the shocks while bouncing and the noise seems to come from the shocks. These are coil over adjustable with about an inch of preload on the springs.I know this doesn't make sense but i'm at my wits end! Thanks.Douger456...

Are you able to determine if the sound comes from only one side? Also, can you determine if it originates in the mounting hardware (the top or bottom bolt a bit loose in the mount etc.)?

ifs shock noise

Actually, I hear it on both sides. With the bolts tight I am able to move the shock body back and forth (circular motion). It has a spacer between the bolt and the mount but this swivels. Pulling it up and down it's solid.Thanks...
