    Unhappy help! those with lowered suspension.

    hi,

    ok i have had koni suspension kit fitted on car now since march/april.

    does anyone still get any creaking from the springs,thudding from suspension.

    i have recently fitted new spring mods to both sides and drop links and anti roll bar bushes. i have tried grease under the spring mod to help the springs back into the seats but noise bstill there. mainly getting the creeking when pulled up at junctions and about to pull away as i am steering.thudding is mainly passenger side over bumps.


    ****** annoying, i just want it to be peacefull.

    any ideas.

    yeah mate, i got 4 in the kit but only fitted one on each side, dont have to fit two each side do you(surely there would be no travel in the shox).



    the thudding is on the passenger side but earlier on i sprayed some wd40 on the rad mount springs and went for a spin and it didnt go away but it didnt sound as bad.dont think it is the struts now, sounds more like something under the bonnet? i aint got a clue.

    I've got Eibach springs on, with the spring seat mod, and I still get the occasional 'boing', but it is only occasional.

    now this is weird,

    jacked the car up this aft to put some grease in the front suspension seats to help the spring mod from creeking. i took the spring mod off and thought, im gonna try the car without it fitted, so i still put a little grease on the seats and round the block i went. ABSOLOUTLY PEACEFULL,NO NOISES AS YET, TOUCH WOOD. when i fitted the koni's from new it was noisy as hell,so i bought the spring mod, made it better for a while but now i don't need it.
