sailor Sway bar hitting something? Some members have seen them shift & hit as they move, particularly after a suspension change....

Best guess since the new to you assembly didn't make noise when first installed. Otherwise i would have said to remove the right one & check the top mount & the shock itself....

Bryan23ferra Alright guys.. Now after adjusting them, I'm getting a terrible popping/thud from the front right side. After that happened I put them back to where they were. But lucky me, still getting the sound. It happens when the suspension in moving down on that side. And it's not the sway bar links. The sound is so loud that I don't think it's a control arm bushing either.

Bryan23ferra It rides good, need to get replacement rear shocks but you wouldn't notice. I love how stiff the ride is. There is no more body roll!

felixthecat Great that you figured it out. Sometimes you need to take a break from it, to figure problems out. Let us know how it rides & handles, huh?

Bryan23ferra So sitting here eating a sandwich looking at this I realized something... If my dumb self would take off the other sway bar link, the bar would twist... Rookie mistake.

DGR coilover install help!!!

I got my DGR's today from a member here. I'm having trouble figuring out how to get the sway bar to work with them.

That's what I mean. I can't figure out if maybe you can make the tube of the strut longer or if the sway bar needs to be removed..

Help! Car is in pieces!
