Just lowered my car today. Put a spax RSX kit on it. It looks great, really low (especially with the standard steel wheels on it:lol The only problem i've had though is the exhaust is now knocking/vibrating. Has anyone had this problem before, how do you stop it?

itll be knocking on the rear swing arm, you need to undo the clamp and twist the exhaust round to create more clearance and tighten it back up

ok, i'll try moving it and getting some new rubbers aswell. Did it stop altogether when you moved it or just not do it as often?

i had this problem myself and i too played with it loads of times trying to get it right but no hope, so what i did is cut up a exhaust rubber and put it on the rear arm so the exhaust dont knock on the metal.
