  • Possible problem...

    Had my Eibach Sportline Springs fitted today...

    Bought them brand new and of course i know they will still have to settle but while driving there is a knocking sound coming from the Front passengers side...i doubt this to be normal?

    Any help muchly appreciated

          i had a problem with my sportlines however i dont think yours is the same one
          mine was due to the spring softening up too much so the shock was knocking off the bump stop but with yours being brand new possible a loose strut? or something

                    lol all you need worry about is the loose nut behind the wheel.

                          do you mean the steering wheel? As in me being a loose nut
                          and to think you gave me the keys to your s3 burg on friday

                          rarb should be with rallynuts tomorrow or saturday, then they should send it out, so hopefully late next week and the very latest
                          Whats next?!?!?

                              ......... Where as if it was a Vauxhall dealer they would have said the knocking was normal ........ then after 5 return visits to complain they would have kept the car in for 3 weeks scratched the bumper .... jacked it up on the sideskirts ragged it and put on 70+ miles on the clock then retuned it still with the knocking. So nice one Pappa good job
