    Hi guys I recently fitted some fk coilovers and when ever I go over the tiniest of bumps there's a loud knocking comes from the front?? I've checked that all nuts and bolts etc are tight which they are so I'm a bit stumped!! Anyone got any ideas what it might be?? Thanks

    I've had no problems with my FK Konigsports - they've been on the car for around 2 years now.

    if is it a sort of rubbery noise then that could be where the mechanics left the old rubber or shock protector on which is rubbing with the new one evertime you hit a bump... too cut a long story sort just jack up and put enough grease between and it should stop the problem. if it is ...

    I had FK AK streets in 2010 and had the same problem. to put it simply its because there sh*t, save for some slightly better ones and get rid or they'll drive you mad.

    Must be fiitted incorrectly, I had cheap JOMs and fitted them myself, they were perfect.

    Sounds like you had a loose top mount.
