A wekk ago my friend and i installed my skunk 2 springs on my 08 si sedan. (thanks to the DIY section!) Well, the drop looks great, car handles well, and as far as the bounce effect, theres barely any.

Howver, i dont know if its just me being paranoid since this was my first time ever doing this, or something ir really wrong. when I drive a slow speeds, I hear odd sounds while going over bumps, small potholes, etc. in my apt. complex. It kind of sounds like a bunch of stuff in loose in my trunk. Like a odd knocking/rattling sound from both ront and rear. i though maybe something was loose but its not. but thats what it sounds like.

Just to be safe, the car is not moving until i get it checked out. but wanted to know any ideas from anyone on here that I can check before taking it in. Thanks.

BTW, I live in the DFW area if anyone knows a good place or has the experience to help me figure this out.

oh damn. this happened to me too. i had a bolt fall out due to lack of paying attention when re-tightening things. make sure all the bolts are still in. just jack it up/take off wheels, and check your shocks for missing bolts. thats what id do first.
