Had some coilovers fitted last week,there not set very low maybe little lower than standard height
I seem to have a front end knocking noise as wheels rotate if that makes sense,haven't driven it since last week when I had them fitted so didn't know if anything was wrong
Any advice guys

Me too mate, mines getting booked in at awesome, going to get them to check it out. I can only hear it at low speed, infact i can feel it through the floor :/

Same problem but think mines coming from the rear end. Too low to get on ramps though. And I have no ramps.

Can you hear it at slow speeds, crawling etc?? It sounds like someone is knocking a massive metal container of water so to speak??

I spend hundreds replacing everything and it came down to subframe bushes.
Yes, its been driving me mad. Every now and then when i go over slight bumps i can here a metal on metal noise aswell.

Right guys
Went back to awesome Gti who kindly checked over the car for me,cheers guys
But found these faults
Top mounts need replacing
Front wish bone rear bush needs replacing
Front inner cv boot split
Hopefully when I replace/change these it will solve the problem
It's an expensive month

Unfortunately, you'll need to add alignment check and reset to that list too. If you're removing suspension and/ or steering components you should always get the alignment checked afterwards. It's practically guaranteed to have been affected.

Fingers crossed sorting those things will fix your issue.
