    Suspention Problem

    Just had a se of JOM coilovers fitted on tuesday but this morning i have a nocking noise on the front passengers side.ive jacked it up and there is a small bit of play in the wheel and does make a knocking noise then, i also know that there used to be a issue with the JOM coilovers with the inside coming loose but thought this fault had been sorted.Just tried to get the wheel off to have a look but think they have been airgunned on as cannot budge the nuts any ideas?

    i think on mk4 golfs you have to have shortend drop links for your anti roll bar, just have a look under to see if that looks like its hitting anything. if not it might be your top mounts, if you have used your old ones they can sometimes knock when you put coilovers on.

    the trouble i had with mine was the top bit of the coli over wasn't machined correctly so didn't slide on the piston pf the shock. this was obvious as the thread through the top mount was very short
