    Default Lowering problem - Screeching

    Just had Koni 30mm springs fitted to my GSi - now on full lock the suspension is screeching?

    Any ideas?
    Could it just be the bearings in the top?


    Thanks

    The bearings only make a noise when turning the wheel James and it's more of a knocking noise rather than a screeching so from my experience I'd say it wasn't them.

    Will remember that for future mate, just not the noise I got from the bearings, but there you go.

    Glad it's sorted and as you say they're cheap and worthwhile changing them while the struts are off.
