stems

well my fork and handle bars have been making this clicking noise when i come down off something so i'll tighten it up and it will be good for a day. but it will do it again the next day. i was wondering if it was because my stem is messed up or headset and if so would an s&m redneck lite be stronger or the xlt. right now i have the DK trail stem that came stock with my eight pack. thanks.

You need to find out what the problem is, the fix or replace it. If your headset is stuffed, getting a new stem won't fix anything.
