Just finished the install of the Sportlines. Everything seems fine except there's a really annoying rattle coming from the drivers side rear. It almost sounds like a woodpecker banging on metal when I'm going down the road and it sounds to me like it's coming from the top of the strut inside the car but I can't tell for sure. I've pulled the strut out a couple of times now and re-tightened everything and it still seems to do it. Any suggestions on what to check next?

Thanks for any help.

So after downloading the service manual and looking at this diagram I've come to the conclusion that I've managed to put #3 underneath #4 so that's probably what's causing this. I'm pretty sure I did it on both sides so looks like I'll have to tear the rear apart again and fix it.

Stupid mistake but easy fix.

We advise all members to download the service manual first. It's a great asset to ForumZ,

It really seems like it will be. I just wish I had done that originally.
Thanks
*edit* all fixed! Hopefully they settle a little bit because it doesn't seem very low as it is. Rides good and no more rattles so I'm happy regardless.
