    Default Coilover knocking noise! Arghhh!

    Hey Guys,

    Firstly, let me say thanks for letting me join this community. I dont drive a Vectra C but do drive a Saab 9-3 2004 - which is the exact same underneath - I have been running a set of TA Technix Coilovers, there great - very stirdy, bit noisey but are stiff and seem to be holding up well, but there eating away at my left hand passenger-side suspension top mount on full drop.

    I know full drop will slowly eat my CV joints etc - but the car is only to be run for another 6 months before I upgrade to the 2.8T *VXR engine* Saab Aero.

    Anyone can suggest what to do with the Topmount? The bolts are being tightened enough according to my mechanic (though who knows) - both topmounts I have eaten through have been second hand (so have had a lot of mileage on anyway).

    Should I just get a brand spanker new topmount (there cheap anyway) and fit it? Does it need to be toughened in any way?

    Apart from that - heres my motor:

    one of my top mounts went quite quick with only 45mm drop, i think the sri's have a different part no. for the top mount not 100% though. must be slightly tougher or something. car looks nice by the way.
