check to make sure your springs are seated right.. the eibachs need to be setaed properly... second did you cut the bumpstops like you are supposed to...?? your may hear them bottoming out... third when you put everything back together did you make 100% sure to keep eveything lined up right as i said in the install thread.... i mean all the parts screwed back together in the same position they came apart in...there should have been a few dots on your factory stuff like little green ones... they need to be lined back up when reinstalling....or mark them first.. check these items first...

I don't mean to thread jack...but...can you cut the bumpstops down if the cars all back together. I forgot to do mine and now need to trim them.

I get some knocking with B&G's when I go over speed bumps or railroad tracks. I thought that was normal. Z, does this happen with the B&G's also??

I had them done at my dealership, they better have put them on right.

glad you got it....

no i have no noises going over bumps with the b+g's...

no you can not cut the bumpstops after the fronts are installed, thebacks pop out pretty easy if you can get you hands in the spring.. but for the fronts you will have to take it back apart to do it..
