A2 GTI/Neuspeed Race Springs/Koni Yellows.
I am getting a metallic banging noise at all speeds when I fall into depressions (like potholes or medium-and-up cracks). These depressions don't have to be very big, just a quick transition. Fine on bumps. I don't like the shop that did the installation... so please don't suggest that I take it back!!! I get a banging noise (subtle) when turning my wheel to full lock while slowly turning out of a parking spot too - like the spring is jumping off the perch or something like this. It happens on both sides, but, only on the inside wheel during these sharp turns. Not CV joints because they are new axles. Any ideas? OH, the guy charged me for new upper strut bearings so I assume they were installed.
Any help is appreciated!

Re: Creaking/Banging noise on harsh *dropping* bumps... (maxorange7)

If I recall, when I am putting the car on a jack it creaks up front too, like springs uncompressing...
