FXT Shock Noise?

Low mileage 2017 FXT is generating a low thud as the front suspension articulates. Hard to say exactly but it sounds and feels like this is when one of the shocks goes near full extension (unloaded). It will do it a 2MPH and wide open buts its certainly harder to pick up on at speed. Machine is all stock, springs are on next to last highest tension setting and the thud does seem to occur less with more spring tension but that could just be wishful thinking.

Anyone else experiencing a bump or thud as the suspension unloads in response to terrain?
I had assumed they all did it but I'm getting ready to lift it and had paused considering dealer's warranty position on the issue once the lift kit is installed.
