Iv had 40mm lowering springs on my C for about 4 months now.
I keep hearing a clicking sound like the coils are touching its all the time whilst im driving around.

The springs are from demon tweeks and they ordered in the correct ones for me - so i dont suppose they are wrong (they went on easy enuff)

Any advise is there anything i can do about clicking?

its called spring chatter, your right, its when the coil compresses and they are touching each other. i have the same problem, but havent found a cure yet other than those rubber things you put between the coils which are crap.

sorry was away for few days.
yeh its a slight like tapping sound,
it nothing to with steering wheel.

can only hear it with window down, n when im like rolling in traffic.

Its definitly just the coil pressing together .

gets really annoying sometimes if i dont have music on

I had it on my corsa b. Dunno if they're the same but it was the exhaust banging on the rear axle. Also my sisters Tigra did it, and then also the handbrake cable was banging on the axle. Bit shit really that back axle!
