      I got these but the springs make do much noise like a rough scrunch sound. It's a 2012 gli, I got the blue ones, they just don't sound right , is there something I am missing here, they are mounted correctly and all. Any advice or help would be great.

      took it to my guy that does my mods on my car and sometimes the spring has to break in/wear for the niose to stop if not use some lithium grease or other lubricant to help. could be a defect but doubt it with the lack of negative feedback from them so far

      The car looks awesome with them on, that freaking sound is embarrasing though, may go back to stock it is so bad. I hope AMI will at least chime in. I want to keep the low, just has to be a fix. It has to just be the springs right, the shocks and struts should be fine.

      Just scrunch, rummmm, rummm, scrunch, bang....
      I knew I should have just got some springs....something told me...

      I highly doubt AMI will turn a blind eye to this issue. And this is my first set of coils im using too as well so its def an interesting experience to say the least. My opinion its probably gonna be an u
      Issue where were gonna have to use a grease or lubricant to stop thie noise if AMI doesnt have an answer which i doubt

      Hello everyone, sorry for the absence from the forums over the last week.

      We will be posting up all the info we have on this subject tomorrow. We have been working with Solo Werks on this for the last month, including testing of a few different solutions for this issue.

      What I can tell you that while this is an issue caused by the lowering with the coilovers, it is not a Brand or design issue, it is a platform issue and has been experienced with every brand we have sold for the MK5 and MK6 chassis including FK, KW, Solo Werks And ST. (check for yourself by doing a search for the brand and noise, groan or squeak i.e. ST coilover noise and you can see for yourself)

      One example is on the vortex here http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...Coilover-Noise

      We have literally spent hours on this with Solo Werks, who was the only manufacturer willing to look into the problem. KW/ST and FK just kept sending out new struts to anyone who called in. In some cases this was 3 sets and I am pretty sure the owner has put his car back to stock now as he was not a home mechanic and had to pay for 3 installs and 3 alignments with zero return.

      That is all for tonight, but once Solo Werks has sent over the official word I will post it up.

      Thanks

      although my coils now sound like trash to say the least this really isnt steering me away from them, but AMI i doubt is gonna leave us hanging with this issue. id just sit tight till they can answer with a solution.

      While mine do not sound like trash, I too am sitting back, hanging tight for a deliverable solution. AMI has been excellent in giving feedback via PM when asked. And as far as I know, they, along with Solowerks, have pinpointed the problem and have found a way to alleviate the issue but they are merely doing long term testing to see if it stays gone so we wont have to worry about it anytime soon. So that they can ship us out a set of whatever it is that we have to stick in between the strut mount and the strut.

      Mine only make a sound from reversing out my driveway to the stop sign on my street, then it loosens up and goes away. Still worth every penny for the drop I got from it. I only plan to use them for two years max anyways before upgrading to higher caliber coils.

      Hey everyone,

      I am waiting for the photos and such from Solo Werks, but here is the deal.

      The upper mount is made up of 2 pieces isolated by rubber - the main triangle that the bearing and spring sit on, and the center component that the shock rod is bolted to.

      The combination of the new angle that the center component is at after lowering along with the higher power shock absorber is causing more force on the center component which in turn is increasing the deflection/movement of the rubber and causing the rubbing noise that some are experiencing.

      We have been able to verify this on one of our own customer vehicles by essentially immobilizing the center section of the factory mount, and it has been noise free for 3 weeks and running.

      As azthegame has said, we are working with a couple of customers who have the issue on a few long term solutions to this noise:


      • A new aluminum/rubber top mount with spherical bearing and camber adjustment

      • A new harder durometer rubber factory style top mount

      • An insert that can be placed on the top mount to limit the movement of the factory mount.



      We do not know why one vehicle differs from another, as it is not vehicle specific - but it is PQ35 VW/Audi platform specific (MK5/MK6). With the customers we have at AMI, we have had less then 2% of the coilovers we have sold for this platform with the noise across all brands we sell.

      For those of you having this issue, if you have not contacted us please send us an email and we can add you to the mailing list as we progress on the options.

      Thanks,
      Glen@AMI
