Default Megan Racing EZ Street Coilovers Bang Noise?

Ive read alot of fourms about the bang (metal to metal) noise. This only happeneds on both my front coilovers when hitting bumps and pot holes. I tried the top mount 17mm nut and allen wrench tightening with open ended wrench still no improvement maybe did it wrong. I tightened the sway bar bolts to the end links. Made steering tighter. Did some lubricating and tryed some tightening on all the components I to take off to do the suspension. Still nothing. But id love for this noise to go away please help! Thanks

Should I try loosing the top mount nut and try re tightening?

Megan Racing EZ Street = GARBAGE...

Not only will you ruin other suspension components but risk ride quality. If you are not Dumped and getting the Bang its because your hitting the stops... Throw them out..
