Re: Clunking noise

if you have lowering springs, but standard shocks, the shocks may be at fault. Shocks are designed to compress/decompress, and on your car, they are constantly compressed so may have leaked or become loose. That said, it could be your drop links-very common, wishbones, track rod ends etc etc


jack the car up and take a good look...


as for painting the wheels it really depends on your cars colour but I would probably pick a decent black colour scheme, perhaps a very dark gun metal grey.

Re: Clunking noise

Depending on the year of yours, there was a recall to do with springs at one point. Did you check that out??

Did you replace the top mounts as well or just the shocks? Mine has been doing the same but hasn't really got any worse so in two minds whether to try and fix it.
