    strange noise after coilovers :-s

    well i had my coilovers fitted last week and there is a strange knocking sound coming from the back end when i go over small bumps in the road, its not loud but annoying and it shouldnt be there. i thought it might have been because it was slammed and the shocks were bottoming out causing the spring to rattle but ive adjusted up and the noise is still there. another thing i think it may be is that the rear adjusters that sit on top of the spring is basically metal on metal with no rubber buffer behind it?? just wondering if anyone has experienced the same thing and has any answers for me???

    What coilovers are they Luke?

    Might be the bushes on the ARB being strained as you're a lot lower now

    Of course there's an ARB at the back!

    Don't know much about V-Maxx

    My Weitec setup at the rear is a separate spring and shock absorber, no rubber stuff

    There is an ARB at the rear yes, but i doubt thats the fault, if the cars been lowered the arb should have been slackened off and tightend back up with the car on all four wheels.

    The springs are in so tightly I would be very suprised if they were moving enough to knock.

    An educated guess would be strut top mount or a worn suspension bush has been highlighted now the car has been dropped.

    Maybe even one of the dampers is knackered, V-maxx stuff isn't the greatest of quality.
