Thanks all for the input. Took car to back to mechanic, and we raised it..he started checking and boom..found a kinda loose either lower control arm, upper, he tightened it and the problem was mechanic also put in some Urethene Bushings the same time with the Bilstein Sports, and he told me that might have caused other parts to move due to the stiffness. Some people recommened this here so thank u. But here comes my question, AM I safe with the sport Bilstens and the Stock springs..? or I need to get the lowered springs..


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.
