Default KYB Struts

I have had mine on since about Feb/March. An i get a clunking sound from them front an back. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced any louder noises from theirs. I have the kyb/tien setup. Just trying to find out. If not i guess i need to have it checked out. Im thinking it is normal since they are stiffer struts than factory an being lowered. I guess sitting on 20" don't help much either. I don't think they are blown. Kinda noticed it more since the weather is getting a little more cooler so now im rolling with the windows up an it is very noticeable... Kinda like clunk clunk sound when riding on uneven pavement or when i hit small bumps. Sometimes it sounds like the strut is gonna come out the top..lol

is it more of a clunking while turning? if so, check CV boots.

I think you should pay a visit to the shop that did the install and have them check your suspension. The rear is just a shock....should not be making a noise especially KYB as its OEM replacement. I have Monroes in mine and its quiet. How are your sway bar bushings and end links? Front and back? were they ever replaced?

I have the same set up and always had clunking in the rear but it turned out the shock wasn't on properly. Now I have a thumping sound in the front drivers side and mechanic blames it on the spring

That's kinda what i get. On uneven pavement it's kinda like a loud thump thump. Both sides. more the front then back. Don't have the funds on me now to have it checked out. With the holidays coming up an what not. I have a firestone card. So if worse comes to worse i will take it to a firestone repair shop an charge that shit. Shouldn't be much to just check it out..

Ha. i was right. i just called a shop an explained everything. An the guy was like if you have lowering springs that is probably the problem. But if you want to have it looked at i can do i look over for ya... Im probably making a mountain out of a mole hill.

Driving today. It seems to make more a bobble bobble sound than a thump.. Sounds like something is loose. Seems to be dominate on the driver side front.. Gonna have it checked asap. When i have a day off..

It could be is the strut mounts. Before I put tein coilovers I had new struts and b&g lowering springs. The struts brand new but the strut mounts where not. They need it to be changed. once i did put on the coilovers everything was and is perfect. They way i was able to tell is going over hump/bumps or rough roads and there was nothing supporting the strut mounts so they made noise

Took it to 2 different shops. An both shops pretty much said the same thing.. Struts are good. Endlinks inner an outer tie rods good. sway bar bushings good. Everything is tight an no safety issue's present at this time. They only said the struts could have a little more play in them with the lowering springs... An that could be the knocking sound i here on certain bumps an some uneven roads... So i guess im stuck with it unless i want to go back stock.. As long as it's not a safety issue im good.. Can't expect it to sound stock..

@silvermax06

lowered mines myself (eibach/kyb) a couple of months ago.
Here are my two cents on the subject

Penny#1. Theres a part in the strut assmbly that has to be installed correctly. Has inner (facing engine) and outer (facing fenders) written on it. I almost installed it the wrong way until i saw the wording.

Penny#2. Springs have a rubber piece called SEATS between them where they fit on the strut this should be very snug as well. If yours are new you should be good here, but i reused my old ones (seats) and noticed wear in certain spots on the rubber (thinner where worn could allow metal to metal). replacing soon
Click the image to open in full size.10 is the rubber seat



Xtra Pennies: A Mechanic told me if you take off your tire, and are able to turn your spring in a circular motion while installed its something wrong. (normally due to bad seats),Youll Get all kind of noises if its turnable, and recently my driver side strut mount went out. I get that noise plus if you remove the cover and look at the top of the strut the rubber will be ripped or movable (have on a brand new polo, not risking getting some engine bay smudge on it right now willl post pic later)

Also when lowering the back i installed the left mount on the top of the shock wrong, it made all kind of Racket. Like a rock in a can. Super Easy fix just wasted an hour removing both shocks to compare what i did right and wrong then reinstalling.

If one side does it you can take a light and look in the top of the rear wheel well and compare to see what was done wrong. If both then goodluck. May take a couple shots.



Anything is a good excuse to isloate myself in the garage working on the car away from my girlfriends Nagging

"I have had mine on since about Feb/March. An i get a clunking sound from them front an back."

I must have miss understood this. Yeah Im surprised they dont make alot of stuff for our cars like struts for lowered or aftermarket headlights. I see more of our cars fixed up than other makes or models. Our cars are fairly easy to replace the parts too.

I must have miss understood this. Yeah Im surprised they dont make alot of stuff for our cars like struts for lowered or aftermarket headlights. I see more of our cars fixed up than other makes or models. Our cars are fairly easy to replace the parts too.

.
Oh yeah. The back turned out to be one of my mufflers knocking against the top part of the bumper...lol.. When hitting bumps. I see there are some other members who have the same problem with clunking after being lowered. So you have no sound at all correct? I was told it was the spring basically.

Had mine looked at. everything was fine. Nothing loose.. They are saying it's spring noise. An the fact the strut isn't designed for a lowering spring. An the guy asked me why i just didn't get coilovers ..lol..
