    I have just fitted the new Jamex coilovers.

    Before I did this, I had a knock, which sounded like it was the shocks knocking, as low on oil? It only happens on light bumps, like a dropped kerb.

    The only things I can think of is either the top mount on the coilovers (I used the origional ones) or subframe mount bushes??? I can't see anything else which could cause this. Almost sounds like a lose anti-roll bar link. I don't have a rear ARB, so can't be this. lol.

    Anyone else had this problem? Its really annoying me! lol.

    Any help much appreciated

    Thanks alot

    Top mounts mate, I would bet real actual cash on it.

    I had to remove a few mm from the centre spacer from mine once to shut it up till i could get a new part it allowed it to pull that bit tighter and remain silent
