    Springs help needed

    Got the wheels changed over last week and there's knocking noise since, iv an idea it might be the foam circular pads on the eibach springs might have moved. Can somebody tell me where these should be located, picture if at all possible. Noise is cracking me up.

    My car has recently started doing this also. I think mine is due to the rubber mounts being worn, so gonna change them out and see what happens.
