    Coilover knocking sound

    I have put a coilover kit on my car and I get a knocking sound when I turn the wheel.

    It's set at around -55mm.

    The condition of the drop links look ok.

    Any ideas

    IF you dont then thats whats causing the knock noise..


    best bet is to buy new top hats from VX and take the bearing out and use it as the old one will more thn likely be broken anyway
