Re: New JOM lowering caps installed making NOISE?? (vdubya97)

i don't have any answers for you, but if possible, could you post a pic of your car with the caps installed? I'm thinking about getting some and haven't seen many pics of mk3's with them put on. Hopefully someone can help..sorry i couldn't.

maybe reinstalled it wrong? (which i doubt)
your bearings might have gone bad. try changing the strut bearings.

Re: New JOM lowering caps installed making NOISE?? (EuroVR6Mk3)

i did try reinstalling them and still makes noise the right side one makes a lot of noise whereas the driver side is fine
