    So after alot of searching I pulled the trigger and bought my drop springs. Finished the install yesterday all is well except when I drive over potholes, large bumps. I get a rattle noise in the strut mounting area. I triple checked all the hardware and all is tight.... any help would be great. 20160624_200435_1466816919024.jpg

    The rattle noise is likely coming from the spring itself.

    Btw, the setup looks great!

    Thanks for the response. I could live with an inch but much more would cause some issues on some of my local roads.

    How many miles have you put on the car since installing the springs?

    Ride looks good. I have the same springs on my Charger. Sorry I can't help with the noise problem.
