    coilovers

    hey im new here, hope you can help me, the other month i added some fk coilovers to my g sri and everything was fine, iv done about 1200 miles on them no problem, but these last few days the back end has been really noisey making knocking noises its doing it nearly constantly driving through town, its not so bad when going faster though,it sounds like something is bouncing around in the boot but its empty, is this normal or do you think something has broke

    mine is fitted on coilovers mate and ever since having them fitted its like a hollow knocking sound from the rear sides as you said around the coilovers!

    I have tightened, loosened, fixed, checked and moved everything! even tried adjusting the rubbers on the boot lid but no luck, i still cant find out what the noise is!

    My exhaust used to knock now and again

    i know you've said it's not your exhaust but what bit did you check? i had this noise on mine when i had the car loadened up, it was the exhaust hitting the rear axle where the exhaust goes over it. and the backbox was hitting the rear spring slightly too.
