    coilover banging even after new ones fitted ?

    hi all ive got coilovers on my s3 and the fronts started banging on big bumps like the car was going to fall apart so ive changed the fronts for new ones but its still the same . the only thing i did was fitted the same springs that where on to start with . anyone had a problem like this as ive now got to sell the other coilvers as there is nothing wrong with them (i had them looked at to make shore)

    Coil overs are noisy regardless and if you have set them quite low they will also crash regardless... I have B8 dampers and -30mm springs and get the occasional crash on bigger bumps... what top mounts you using? std ones?

    Coilovers are bone shakers lol it feels like at times my car is going to fall to bits.

    Plus with the yellow dog bone mount and Uprated engine mounts.

    It's safe to say if I didn't enjoy the car so much I would live with it.
