    That's a wee bit expensive! As has been said Daps are less expensive, and Eibachs. Have you got a RARB fitted? If you have, it could be loose - mine made a knocking noise when it came loose.

    hi i dont have a rarb would like one though, the knocking sound doesnt seem to occur when i have a passenger as often , i took the car to my friend who works at ats and he checked suspension n he said it sounds like exhaust as that clunked when he wobbled it ? would love to avoid spending cash if poss i did ring courts and they promoted dap 1st off just under £200

    Actually now I've thought about it, if that price for the springs includes fitting, it isn't too bad (the price of the shocks is still shocking) - hopefully it's just your exhaust though

    Mate, get it on a ramp and check all the bolts are tight on the shockers. I've just had the same thing and was getting ready to shell out for new shockers when we found the bottom bolt was loose, a quick tighten up and hey presto no clunking noise anymore. It might not be the same prob but you never know, might save you a few quid.

    will have a check on shocker bolts , exhaust is held with rubber things they look old and dry , can these be replaced easily and would it hold exhaust more still so it doesnt clunk?
