Lg lowering springs

Since i installed my lowering springs i have a squak type noise from the rear over certain bumps. I took them off and lubed all rubber to metal contacts and it still has the noise. Any suggestions?

Do they have any plastic sleeves over some of the coils? Maybe call or go by LG and have them listen and give you any suggestions.

That is most likely your problem. It happened to me when one fell off and I noticed a noise where there had not been a noise there before.

Yes....pretty much all the springs have sleeves on a coil or two to keep them from making noise. Check with LG and see if there were supposed to have sleeves and see it they'll let you switch them out with some that have them.

So i took the car and LG looked at it yesterday and they said the install is right, didnt ask about sleeves but i dont see them in any of the kits LG sells. Any idea what size sleeve you would get to install on them?
