oh, then you will need an allen wrench and a 12 or 14mm open end wrench to tighten them. Are you on lowering springs? if not, then your strut is most likely blown

What sleeves are you using? Also how low are you dropped?
Stock struts are not meant to handle any drop but usually can handle a bit before blowing out. Also you should check your sleeves that everything is tight in place.

Re: suspension noise

The guy I bought them from said they were skunk2's. Every thing is tight. I'm 22 inches or 21 fender to the ground. But this morning I was sitting in My drive way and I turned the wheel and it was squeaking from the front left. Then I started driving and itdidnt make a squeaking noise like it was last night when I was driving driving

Re: suspension noise

stay on topic..


get a friend to shake the car up and down while you stay down and watch the suspension do it's thing. try to see if there is any noise that way and if you can pinpoint it out..

Check your ball joints for play(can be done by grabbing the wheel at 12/6 and checking for play up-down and then grab the wheel at 9/3 and check for play side to side). Get a flash light and look at your strut/shock/damper. Is there fluid/oil leaking out from the area where the shaft enters the body/housing? If yes you might have a blown damper. If not grab a socket set and a wrench and check if any of the 5 nuts that hold the strut/shock/damper in place in your strut tower. In addition also check your swaybar endlinks and bushings and brackets for play and extra movement.
Thread could have been ended right here.

To the OP, try this first, and then if you are still hearing the noise, I think it may be time to pull the suspension apart, and look in to some replacements.
