    yes spring is in set location doesnt turn as such, its like its tryin to turn with the strut then bounces back, can here most of the noise from the top of the strut but its actually the spring? bearings maybe?

    top mount bearing. the spring should turn with the leg. if not the top mount bearing is knackard or youve put it together wrong.
