    Did you remember to move the bearing from the top of the old struts to the coilovers?

    Mine does this or something simular think its the bearings at the top of the suspension that gave up on mine. Got a all the new top suspension parts and not got round to getting them fitted yet.

    Mine only does it turning left and it used to make the spring jump a little bit when i watched it.
