    Should have been more clear, all the noises sounded like coil over related (which came in the upr k member kit). My current car has maximum motorsports coilovers (with stock a arms and k member) and are quiet.

    There's two spots that the coilover kits can cause banging. One is a loose fitting sleeve on the shock body and the notch where the sleeve sits on the strut mounting point. The second point is where the strut end actually goes through the caster camber plate bushing. ive seen caster camber plates that state for use with certain brand struts, due to this. Apparently strange struts are known for being slightly undersized. With a little creative thinking by the installer, these shituations can be remedied

    I hadn't checked this a while and man now there's a lot of good info thanks guys. I recently just bough drag radials and some rear wheels and I'm getting my whole rear end done next week so cash is a little low right now but in a couple weeks I will be doing k member coil over kit probably going with the team z
