LG coilover problem

Im getting a hard clunk noise in the back when I hit a decent sized bump either going fast or slow. You guys have any ideas what the problem is? Im thinking it might be the spring. don't know

Did this happen after instal or something that just came up? nI had a clunking on one side in the rear and after talking with anthony it turned out to be the spring rubbing on the body of the car during compression. Check for any rubbing marks on the first couple coils at the top to rule this out. If you see any marks on the coils, the upper spring mount can be moved to give more space. The holes in the upper mount are slotted which gives lots of adjustability. On mine I adjusted so the area of the spring that had rub marks had more clearance and no more noise.

If the spring is not rubbing, check the swaybars...i lowered mine too much and the swaybar was hitting the frame...

Check this link; http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...=385590&page=6

I have a set and I'm wondering if they are worth installing. I have Hotchkis 1" drop springs with full suspension upgrades right now. My biggest concern is ride quality. Any info would be appreciated.
