Right ibhad a slight knock before but.....I have now fitted my coilovers and it has a awful knocking noise. Also I have recently changed all the arms on the front cause of this and it's still knocking. This is drivin me insane. Please help.
right i think i have figured out wha my problem is, could it be that due to the car being that much lower at the front that the drive shafts are hitting my anti roll bar? I have seen that they do uprated ones so that this doesnt happen
Gavla I to had the same problem back in 2009 when i had the AP's fitted, it drove me up the wall trying to find out what the F**k was making the sound from the front end (crashing, clunk ) I could not bare it even some advice i got ment me having to spend more money but the noises were still there. I went out mind in the end and spent the money on Eibach's.
I get a slight knocking noise over light bumps sometimes since lowering my S4, I replaced the arms on the drivers side but still the same, stripped it all down etc and couldnt find anything, I even took it to AMD and they said that nothing was wrong! They have seen this in the past though. Mine is very minimal though so it hasnt bothered me at all!
Yeah I went to Amd to get the front fitted and have had nothing but bother everytime I have been to that place. Even with my old cupra r. There has to be a solution to this. Is it a dodgy kit I have bought or is it just that it's too low
I don't think it's the stuff you've bought as I have h&r lowering springs on and it's doing the same. Have u checked top mounts maybe? Does it make the noise all the time or when your turning at a certain angle?
Defo not exhaust knocking, its such a faint noise on mine the missus can't even hear it!! Not sure how loud the OP's noise is? Are there any guides to removing the shock to check the top mount? Got a few days off later in the week so may as well have a look!!
There is a bolt under the battery for part of the steering rack that can come loose, Might be worth checking that.
CLICK ME here is where I read about it. I know its in the A6 forum but its the same on all audi's. not sure if you have to remove the bolts labelled in red as it looks like you can get to the bolt
I have the same noise as Galvar, I ran standard sport springs and no noise then went to Koni sport springs with standard sport shocks and no noise, and Ive fitted Fks now and have the noise, Ive stripped the front end down 3 times now and its still there,on the last time I striped I put an extra washer on the top of the strut and it has made it better but its still there, Im going to take mine to a garage next week who has a shaker and will have another look but at the moment my money is on the top mounts
Yep. I dunno if it's cause it's too low or not. It just doesn't make sence anymore. I've had enough now I wanna sell it but spent souch money on it trying to fix this noise. Seems like it's quite a common problem on the a4
Well who would have thought it I have changed the suspension back to what was on it and yep you guessed it the knocking has gone. So I will be getting straight on th phone to venom motorsport demanding a refund. Motor is goin now anyway after all this. Fancy something more fun....... S3
See Like i said many moon's ago on many a coilover thread that fitting them is a big pain in the ****.. We all won't the nice drop but don't want the carzy clunks and bang's.. I'm happy with the combo i have now and most of all Nooo Crazzzy Noises..Gavlar good luck mate..
