You should be ok. But the issue is there is a reason they made the change!

With the front up on Jack stands and the wheel hanging free, I could grab the Eibach and move it around. It was not under any compression. This seemed odd, but does not seem to be the source of my noise. Mine is like a loose sway bar banging against the frame, yet all the bolts were tight.

Here's what it does. I can actually spin it around too. Is it possible the shock/strut is defective and allows the suspension to travel too far and hence let the spring out of compression?

Does it do this on both sides? I really do not think this is a strut issue.

You should probably chat with the folks at Eibach on this.

Well.... I just came back from the dealer, had the struts changed, and the same noise. They called the "GM engineer", and he told them to try a new vehicle on the lot, and compare.... same noise. The Engineer then told them to remove the new struts, and put my old ones back... He basically said that this noise is inherent to the vehicle, and the only way to relieve it would be to put softer spring, which would sacrifice the handing... What a waste of time Why didn't they just try another car from the start ? What I DON'T understand, is that my car only starting developing this noise towards the late fall

There you have it folks.... Our cars will always sound like my '89 Grand Prix :(

camarorick, Thanks for the update. Maybe the after market suspension people will find a fix for this embarrassing noise.

Lets hope.

I'm starting to wonder what else will be inherent to the vehicle. Here's my list...

- Front suspension
- Slight grinding from 2nd to 3rd
- Looseness in the drive train ( slop in the CV joints )
- clutch that has no gradual engagement

It's a good thing I'm a fanboy, 'cause I'd be looking for something else

I thought I was crazy until I read this thread. I have 300 miles on my 2SS and JUST heard the noise yesterday.

I would have sworn my sounds were coming from the rf suspension. Removed the tunnel brace and all noises disappeared. The exhaust was hitting it. Loosened all the exhaust clamps (aftermarket exhaust), raised the exhaust, retorqued the clamps and installed the Elite Engineering tunnel brace. No more noises.

FINALLY. I thought I was going crazy. Same issue here. I have 8900 miles on her. I am going to bring it in to New Rochelle Chevy when I have a chance. It's not something that happens all the time. But when I turn into my drive way (which is on an incline), it does it. Or the occasional slow speed pot hole/speed bump. Real annoying, makes the car sound cheap.

I'm adding my name to this problem.
My car has 3000miles on it and I just heard this "POP" sound coming from the front driver suspension for the second time, both case in similar circumstance: Hard right turn under breaking over uneven road. It's a scary sound you don't want to hear at all...never ever...feel like the suspension just broke or something.

The more I look at the suspension, the more it looks like the noise is caused by the whole strut assembly not really being fixed to the strut tower. I commented in a thread about Pfadt's new Camber Plate Kit, that it might actually be the solution. Is there anybody with this noise willing to try out the front camber plate kit from Pfadt, and report ? Maybe Pfadt could do a trial with one of the members to see I know that if it does solve the problem, it could mean a lot of business for Pfadt

I am adding my car to the list. It has had the same noise over sharp, low speed bumps since about 400 miles. The current mileage is 2500.
ALSO:
Does anyone else have a vibration in 4th & 5th under high load & high speed 80+?
The rear view mirror vibrates with same frequency as it does with high volume & high bass setting on the radio.

My car has 4000 miles (2LT/RS), and the noise started about a month ago. The other day I hit a pot-hole (didn't know it at the time), but the noise was so loud it sounded like I hit something laying in the road, very hard. It scared the hell out of me. I knew I was on the road when it happened, so I turned around to see what I hit and what kind of damage was done to the passenger side. When I got back to the spot, I found no damage to the body, and nothing laying around that I could have hit. I did see a fairly good sized pot-hole, which is what I had hit. It wasn't big enough to do any damage, but that sound it made, I will never forget it. Now the car is getting scary to drive, bumps make it wallow all over, I can feel looseness in the front suspension, and the noises are getting very frequent. I am not driving it and am taking it to the dealer tomorrow, to get it fixed. Luckily my dealer is one of the best dealers in Atlanta, so they WILL take care of whatever the noise is.

Also, I noticed that every once in a while, the car will hesitate when I give it a sudden push on the accelerator. It is almost like the computer is running slow, while trying to figure out what gear to shift into.
