    Rattling Noise after doing Coilovers

    I fitted JOM coilovers to my A3 TDi today

    I put new top mounts on all round, everything is great and Im really happy.

    However on really rough roads I have a rattling noise from the nearside rear, Im 99% sure it is all tight.

    Just wondering what people think may be causing it? I did both side in the same way and the offside seems perfect.

    I notice that if I push the rear of the car when it is on the ground I can hear a slight knock, but cant work out where it is coming from.

    Any advice welcome, Thanks

    To add to your other post.

    Check the bolts that secure the adjusters to the rear beam. They need to be tight and from experience work themselves loose easily. Failing that just make sure the damper bolts are done up properly.

    Yeah I can imagine they become quite loose easily, I used the windy gun and noticed that the plate started to bend up as I was tightening it up
