Different noises since lowering!
I have recently lowered my S3 on fk coilovers, although the budget ones, i have used them several times before on my previous cars and have never had any problems with them.
Although since lowering it i am getting different noises, some creeking noises, knocking noises and the most annoying noise sounds like its coming from the back and makes a bang/thud kinda noise when going round a corner or over speed bumps at low speeds
I did replace both the front top mounts and bearings along with new ball joints on the front, but cant seem to figure out the noise from the rear of the car.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what it could be?

I used to get a knock from the the rear going around corners which turned out to be the ARB drop links... replaced them and all sorted...

You could be right. I did replace the front arb drop links on the front as they came with the coilovers, but didnt come with the rear ones so used the old ones they did look abit tired. The noise is more of a clunking than a bang thinking about it.
