Some New Suspension Goodies

My Eibach Sportline springs just weren't stiff enough for all the shi*ty roads that i drive on everyday so i needed something stiffer!
And my lude, since i bought it, made this clunking noise in the rear which was always annoying.

So Finally!!! I Bought new stuff!















New Control Arms so now no more clunking!!




Look how busted the old ones were




New!













And Look! theres an engine in my garage! lol

Re: Some New Suspension Goodies

The clunking noise that you refer to, is it like a banging everytime you hit a bump? If so i have that and ive been trying to figure out what it is.. so its that new piece that you just installed, i thought the control arms were underneith the car not up top there by your struts. It started banging ever since i put my lowering springs on.

yeah everytime i hit a bump it would make the noise. Well there are lower and upper control arms, this was my rear upper ones making the noise.

However since you just started hearing it after putting your lowering springs on it might have to do something with that? The auto shop i took my car to thought it was my springs hitting the spring mount due to no spring isolator, that may be your problem.
