View Full Version : squeaking coilovers

03-20-2006, 01:01 AM
is there any reason for brand new coilovers to squeak when going over a bump etc...maybe it's settling?..it doesnt happen every bump just the more major ones..or very lumpy roads... i've been told everythings been tightened ..and the shop has much experience with installing KW's so I don't think it's installation. Thanks in advance.

i actually posted this on the b7 a4 forums...take a look there..im not home so it's not easy for me to post a link on a pda...anyways the main problems that was pointed out was..either the control arms...the sway bars...or the calipers were rubbing...etc..cant rmb the details ..take a look there...i wont actually know whats wrong with my car until i get back to my car..which will be a few weeks if my tuner finds anything ill let you know...

from what i know (which is not a lot) there's bumpstops on the stock sport suspensions..which is what my KW is currently using..my previous kit Stasis SS had bumpstops that came with it...maybe you can contact TEIN or post it in the b7 forums and see if any1 has any....GL on it...let me know if it fixes ur problem
