    Mine made lots of noises when the shocks were topping out over bumps. After a few weeks of driving it’s much better now. Let them break in and enjoy :)

    Mine made a noise at top out not long after Eibach install, front wheels were off the ground after dip, but it wasn’t excessively loud or harsh, hasn’t done it since.
    The lower shock mount ( to LCA) is supposed to be 406 lb ft. If not tight enough, I would think that could cause noise...if that is the problem, might be able to see some marks on the shock mount or LCA if it is moving. I used a torque wrench and torque multiplier to reach spec, not sure how shops normally torque that bolt.

    I experienced the same thing when I installed Eibachs on my 19. After a month or so and 1-2k miles, they totally settled in and I no longer have this issue. Seems they just need a little time to break in. Best thing to do is just go out and run them hard off road for a day or two
