I used to have it on my nova with lowering springs and i have always had it on my lowered GSI when it was just on springs and still now its got a full kit.
The noise is that fooking annoying tappin from the rear ya can hear at slow speeds, always from the rear, what the fook is it, spring chatter?, how and can you cure this annoying noise

nah sorry didnt mean just, i have had the GSI 4 Years and noise had always been there, same with the Nova so knowing the cars are on the same chassi i though it was suspension rerlated, the knocking noise is in time with the bumps in the road and is definately coming from the suspeision strut top areas

when was the last time you checked the seats were still on the axle? they come out quite easily if you have lowering springs?

I had to do the same as the FK adjusters would not sit properly. I have this noise to. Sounds like the dampers are knocking.

Yup exactly I had the same with a set of spax dampers. Faulty damper was knocking inside, had like play and it was a rear one - made a hell of a racket! Got it changed under warranty and now its fine

nah man its the spring chatter, i had it on my astra with springs and dampers, not much you can do about it to be honest, just have to get used to it, look at the springs, ull notice when the cars on the ground they are resting together, when u drive then open and close slightly, this causes the noise

Ive heard that the top mounts to the shocks make this noise. Put your standard Vauxhall Top mounts on, solved my problem!
