    Default Noise from drivers side when turning

    Hi all I fitted my eibach pro kit a few months ago as original springs had snapped. But now Hearing a slight knock or even slight twang when I turn the wheel not all the time just now and then I did grease and clean the strut top bearing and they were in good order so wondered what it could be. I'm goin out now to check the spring and see if I can see anything loose but anyideas would be great cheers

    maybe a loose bolt somewhere, is the strut nut tight at top?

    otherwise drop links are worth a check

    i'd check all elements of the suspension again from bushes to bearings

    presume wheel nuts are all tight too to right torque?

    also check CV joints if its happening on the turn

    Did you fit sleeves onto the bottom of the spring where it is in contact with the strut cup?

    Checked last night all bolts are tight spring is tight with no cracks or broken pieces and there is no play in any of the arms and links I can see of. Te sleeves are also fitted how ever there was lots of dirt and grit in the spring cup so I power washed it all out to see if that helps I will drive today and have a listen if it's still there what can it be it's only when you turn the wheel and it's not all the time either it sounds like a dull twang and knock

    Second port of call would be the strut top bearings then. Not expensive but a pain to change

    En I changed my springs 5months agony stripped down the bearing cleaned them and greased them up so they were perfect

    Since cleaning my springs out with the power washer it sounds so much better now only there very slightly now but the twang has gone and it's now more of a dull knock

    And the noise is back very time I turn te wheel full lock to lock it's like the spring is twanging I have check springs and all fine it's just started a few weeks ago I have power washed the springs to get all te dirt out but I wonder if it's the salt grit grttig caught under te spring and causing it to jump slightly or it could be worth changing strut top bearings.

    It's only on the drivers side though any more ideas welcome or if you have experienced this before and found out what it was thanks guys
