If it's making noise over bumps, make sure you have enough preload that the spring isn't going completely slack over the bump, and also check the tightness of the top nut on the front shocks (not the ones mounting the camber plate to the car, the one mounting the shock to the camber plate). Both of those can cause noise.

What does your dealer say? I haven't seen a properly installed set of Ohlins do what you're describing. We sell and install a lot of these. Have they been doing this since the install?

Yep




The dealer to me they could help send it into Ohlin USA. there is not rebuild in Canada
There was no noise when I picked up the car from the installed. The Coilover was very quite from what i remembered. The noise started about 3 weeks ago. I've recheck it again today, top bolts torque to spec, spring ring tight. end link no play, preload okay.But noise is still there. I have a friend sat in my car today. He described the noise I'm hearing as popping noise . lol
But I'm 100% sure, when I had them installed it was like very quite same as stock if not better.

The only authorized Ohlins R&T rebuilders in North America are PSI in the Cali and Ohlins, NC.

With 1800 miles you def don't need a rebuild. I'll pull a kit off the shelf and post a few pics today. There isn't much that can make noise in there..
