Check to see that the hood supports are touching the underside of the hood when closed. Adjust them by screwing them out untill they touch. You should be able to tell if they are touching by looking under hood where they come to rest.The rubber stoppers should leave a mark

This will keep the hood tight and from moving around.

Check those rubber bumpers and when you get the height you want and hood looks nice and tight you can use another nut to lock it in place. I adjusted mine a few times and they would eventually loosen for some reason. I think I used a 10mm nut and tightened it down to where the hood bumper threads in to lock it in.:)

I've checked my rubber stops and the hood moves and rattles up & down anytime you get over 85mph..

That doesn't suprise me with all the extra air going under the truck from the lift and 35's.
