Default Light Knocking From Front End

Guys i hear a light knock sound coming from my front end while driving at low speeds and turning. I am lowered on D2 coilovers and i thought it was my links so i changed them both and i still hear that noise. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

Has this knock sounds always been there or was just after the coilover install?

How long have you had them installed?

I'd double check all the bolts on top of the strut. Sometimes those budge just enough to cause a knocking sound. Also make sure you have enough preload on your springs, you shouldn't be able to move them when the car is in the air.

thanks for the response fellas. But i just have one more question when i installed the coil-over that bolt when the damper control is located (the big bolt) was i supposed to tighten that or they come tightened?

Had them installed for about a week now. And my spring preload is good i checked them.
