When I lowered my car I heard clunking sounds in the rear right side of my car. I had Goldline springs. I called the company and they sent me a new set with some silence tubing on it, it got rid of most of the noise but it is still there and drives me up the wall whenever I cruise without music. I'm not sure what it is or what it comes from. My dealer told me that it is from the springs rubbing together, I'm not sure if I buy that one or not....but who knows. Let me know what you find out.
Life dealt me a hand and I\'m bluffing hard, I\'m playing poker with a joker and some uno cards.

This might help someone. When I put springs on my car 2 weeks ago I got that. I re-installed the springs and still got it. Finally I found that the fuel fill pipe was kind of loose down there. I guess with the stock springs it didn't jar it enough to make it hit but the stiffer springs did. It is just plastic so I put a zip tie around it and the plastic liner it runs next to and held it in more knock!

Hope this helps.
