It appears so, think I saw 3-8mm or so Allen head bolts securing it to the spindle. I didn’t see any movement marks so didn’t bother checking them but worth a shot.Do the wheel hubs bolt to the spindle on these cars? Maybe it's loose?
at this point anything I try is beyond reason but why not, I have an extra pair. I’ll need an alignment after but am sure I’m past the point of a no-cost solution.you just don't want to believe it's the coilover.
stick a stock strut in there.
change it and see if it helps first before getting the alignmentat this point anything I try is beyond reason but why not, I have an extra pair. I’ll need an alignment after but am sure I’m past the point of a no-cost solution.
I can literally jump on the front end with no noise but eh....maybe the CO shaft has lateral play within the bore 🤷🏼♂️
he had me a bit confused too. shouldnt matter unless you change them permanently anyways. for just testing purposes it wouldnt do any harmwut?
you mean the upper slot in the clevis and the adjusting screw in the knuckle? unless you have camber plates we all don't know about.
it's called a clevis.Broskis,
The oblong upper hole on the strut frame. If I remove the CO that I have in there now I’d have to reinstall in the same position to have the same camber I had before.
Ooh, you’re saying that if I don’t mess with the adjusting screw on the knuckle should go back to the same location, gotcha

i would think the sound would show up whenever torque is applied to the drive train, but it's worth a shot.Anywho’s, went out to do a quick R/r and remembered that I had raised the height some for these other wheels I’m running. Then I wondered if I inadvertently messed with the preload so I reset the preload a spanned wrench’s width and no change.
Had my son do some back and forths but he’s a newb so was hard for me to get a good listen so I had him record another vid.
What’s weird is I heard the sound just as the clutch is engaged which makes me wonder if the motor mounts are shot. They are old team scss 2 piece deals.
Son of a gun, could they be broken and hitting the interior safety locks???
should anyone care to have a listen:
yeah, without knowing what to look for I can neither agree or disagree. Sometimes it’s wheel well, others strut tower, others it’s sounds like pass side, others it’s near the motor. The sound is so discrete it’s so hard to pin point it’s origin.i would think the sound would show up whenever torque is applied to the drive train, but it's worth a shot.
