2 things, first you now have a stiffer suspension so any other looseness will be more pronounst. Second thing recheck the shock cartridge caps for tightness.


I have been told here that the sports Bilstein Shocks should go with the lowered springs. My mechanic told me you can do the upgrade without the lowered springs. I wanted to try the sporty feel and I went with his opinion. Todat the second day I have them on and I am hearing something in the front like something hiting against something else. (on bad roads) (on occasions) Is it becuase these shocks are not the right kind? Is the sports shocks-lowered springs a must, or recommended.
Regards,
Francino
