Question Knockin/clunking comming from coilovers

Recently installed raceland coilovers (I am aware that you get what you pay for)

I currently have them bottomed out, when I turn the wheel past a certain point at low speeds, or even while parked I hear a knocking/clunking type of noise comming from inside the fender. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problems and if so what can I do to fix it. Please let me know if you have any ideas


P.s. if your just gunna tell me that racelands are ****, then save yourself the trouble because ive heard it b4.


Thanks in advance for any help!!

Most likely your swaybar endlinks. If you re-used your stock endlinks and you're slammed, they're too long and they're buckling when you turn. Get adjustables or search this forum for an alternative endlink....there are a couple of other vehicle (non-bmw) whose stock endlink size are a good enough fit.

Knockin/clunking comming from coilovers

if they're ultimos they would have came with shorter end links. so if that's the case it might be your wheel hitting the strut. a lot of people put 5mm spacers on to clear it. that's what I have

When i have the hood open, you can see the coil spin the jerk back into place. Could the spring not be seated correctly, or could it be something else?
