hello everyone
i need help with my eibach pro dampers. had them installed on my 2001 jetta vr6. the dampers came with front bump stops, but nothing for the rear. so my mechanic cut my rear bump stops. now i have been driving for a while and i hear a nasty rattle sound coming from the rear every time i hit a bump. i noticed that my dust covers in the rear are loose and i can move them up and down with my hand. that is whats causing that rattle sound. was the mechanic suppose to cut the rear bump stops? there is a gap now between the cut bumpstops and the dust covers. can i remove the dust covers? or will there be a problem if i do?
thanks

Re: help with eibach pro dampers (2001boravr6)

I just installed H&R's but the principal should be the same. My kit said use all the original dust covers and bumpstops, you shouldn't have to cut anything. The dust covers will move and do not make any noise, but don't take them off unless you want to ruin the strut.
