Hey all,

I got an 04 Acura TSX. Recently I lowered the car with ff type 1 coilovers. After install, I noticed that ONLY on turns I would hear what sounds like a bolt or nut go from one side of the car to the other side. Regardless of which way I turn the wheel. Sound is definately coming from the front. I have searched everywhere online cannot find anything that relates. Wondering if anyone ran into the same problem. I have lifted the car on several occassions afterwards to see if I can find the culprit but I cant find anything wrong with it at all.


It affects no performance, or the turning or anything. Its just a very very annoying sound. If I turn slow enough, there is no noise. Like a metal on metal sorta noise that comes from it. and specifically coming from Front end.



Any ideas greatly appreciated !



:eek:hsnap:

i had a rattling noise that made my car feel loose..at times it would constantly rattle other times rarely. This, as soon as I installed my buddy club n+ coilovers. NO specific side, sometimes more present on driver side other times on passenger side.

Turns out my swaybar endlinks were SHOT in the front, so much play I could move them with my fingers.

Good some MOOG ones and the car feels composed. :)

Do you have a front camber kit? The Ingalls front kit is known to rub.

Check the bolts on the top hat of the coilover.

No camber kit, Will check top hat bolts, but last time I checked everything was as it should be.


About the sway links. It could be this but im not sure. My front right side is already replaced with a moog serviceable end link. the left side is stock. Someone else was telling me this, but when I checked they are pretty stiff. Its like a bolt thats stuck somewhere and it rolls around on heavy turns. But I will check the endlinks,
