    Problems after replacing rear springs

    Hi - I have replaced my rear springs on my astra after one snapped.

    I got some KYB Springs (Kayaba) and they are for the Astra with sports suspension 1.8 - which is what I have.

    Now i have some knocking from the rear - it sounds like the coils are knocking together when going over large bumps.

    Now before I ring the company and see whats going on can anyone tell me if i've done anything wrong when fitting them or if something else might be knackered.
