    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.

    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

    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..

    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.
