Alright, heres the story, a fellow member installed my coilovers today and everything went well. Until, we took it for a drive and noticed a clanking sound coming from the trunk, specifically, the left rear coilover. Its a weird clunking noise and we couldnt figure out where the noise was coming from. Everything was bolted on tightly, and the ride height was adjust. Its about a finger gap right now, and the noise gets louder on bumps.

Did anyone else have this issue or know what the problem might be? I'm going to take it to a shop to get an alignment but would like to know what might be causing the odd noise.

Thanks!

had the exact same problem with mine. Went back to the shop where i got them installed, they told me it was defective :ugh: ok, then i contact the place where i got them and they told me to just retighten everything. Well after getting everything retighten, and after couple more weeks of driving the"knocking/ clunking" noise seems to be gone :confused: . Go figure. Hope the noise stay away.
good luck :thumbsup:

sounds like the locking perch for the height is loose. take a screw driver (flat) stick it on the single locking perch and then what i did was use a hammer to hit the screw driver and it nicely tightened it...... no more clucking.
