    Banging noise with kyb shocks.

    I've bought a full set of KYB Strut Mount Plates SM5139 (for all 4 shocks)...

    I'm having some banging metallic noise, every time I go over a bump... So I will be removing soon the kyb shocks, and swap the old strut mounts for those new replacements, and hopefully will fix the problem.

    At the same time, I'm thinking about buying longer screws, and add some diy shock spacers (delrin??)... What do you think?

    Wouldn't that tend to shorten the suspension travel? Maybe I'm not understanding this correctly.

    AO - No, I have the replacement kit standing on my desk, hopefully in 2 weeks I will take a look at it.

    (We are making the last panels of the airplane fuselage (replica).
    Will open a thread when everything is done, so far it's looking really good :-)
