Hi All, I have fitted Dobinson springs & shocks, they work great, got good lift but it tends to make a little springy noise over bumps. Any ideas, I was sure they were seated right & have the rubber caps back on & they are fitted on the right sides ????

Not really sure what a "little spring noise" would sound like, but if there squeaking perhaps recheck the seating rubbers. Some coils also had a few wraps of plastic coating around the first few winds, might help if it is coil chatter.

If you can have an assistant "bounce" each corner of the car while your looking under neath might help to localise the problem then remove a wheel and look for any signs of rubbing etc. All else fails try a suspension or 4WD specialist if they can help quote the problem free of charge you then may be able to sort it yourself.

These are hard to diagnose over the internet as it could be any number of things but your on the right track given its only started since installing the new springs/shocks.

I get a twang over speed humps and on road if there is dip in the road... Going to replace my rubber spring caps in the front next week.. both mine and speedy_1 have the same issue... Hopefully it will fix it
