    Hi guys,

    I recently lowered my car on ap coilovers and ever since a bad knocking noise has developed. It seems to be coming from the back of the car at low speeds when turning only.

    Also noticed today that there is a clicking noise coming from the front left of the car. it occurs when I start in first gear or when I brake, I haven't heard it in any other situation...

    For both I had a good look around to see if anything was broken or worn but it all looks fine.
    Any particular ideas of what I should be looking at?

    thanks for the help.

    As for the rear check ARB and droplinks and the front ensure the wheel is torqued to 120Nm.
