My Ride: 325ixt
upon further inspection.. knocking noise was loose front stabilizer that got knocked loose when i hit that pot hole. it is now fixed.

Is it possible the front is riding high because of the original shock bumper is too tall with a lowering spring? Was thinking of cutting 1" out of them? (Shocks are Bilstein HD on Eibach Springs)

Also, noticed my rear is not level and one side is tucked in more than the other. The right side is lower by a full inch compare to left side. I just ordered spring pads, Im hoping new pads will help. Also, oddly the right wheel is also almost 1 inch closer to the center of car than the left side (meaning, left side, wheel is closer to fender and right is further away. I was thinking of adding a spacer to widen the rear.. and noticed that only the right side was tucked in. I'm going to take it apart and measure part for thickness to see where this illusive 1" has disappeared or appeared (on left side).
