    Hey guys. I was on D2 springs and had a lot scraping for where I live, just too low for here in PA, pothole city. I switch to Eibach Sport lines. I cut the front bump stops but not the rear. I'm getting noise at different times from all around and they hit a little harder than I thought they would. Is it because they are new and I need to wait a little or did we mess up something during install? We are very thorough and it's not our first spring install. I can never seem to be happy after I do springs.

    Also my rear control arm bushings are dry rotting already. Less than a year old. They are cracked. Should I worry. I went with Godspeed. Yes, I know I'm sorry. lol

    solution...cut your bump stops. 18-19mm in front.

    Grease the cv boots and any rubber parts that swivel. And any rubber to rubber and rubber to metal contact spots. I used the wd40 silicone spray and it fixed the creaking.

    damn it I went with godspeed camber arms too. Hope they don't have issues so soon.. but I have my share of terrible roads living in LA. Half the time I'm cringing thinking about how my suspension is taking a beating just from driving straight at 30mph.

    ok so fixed my issue. the endlinks were bad. apparently if you look at them wrong they break. now i only have small creaks from the springs every now and then.

    I've been chasing a clunk in mine all week. Checked everything but couldn't find where it was coming from and narrowed it down to the adjustable links lock nut. It was just loose enough to move over bumps causing the noise.
