Odd *clunking* sound from front end

After putting in my Fk 60/40 lowering springs my car seems to sound like the springs are chattering on the perches, it happens going over some bumps but not others, what could cause this?

does it happen on turns? or is it only on up and down movements such as turns?

It doesn't make the noise on turns, and the strut collars and pads are in. The sound is like if you could grab the spring and shake it on the perch, that metal on metal sound.

hey sorry to go OT, but how's the ride quality with those things?
I've got 60/40 KW's but i'm hesitant to put em on as i'm thinkin bout driving cross country.

The FK's pretty smooth? Comfy?

Got any pics of ur car w/ them installed?
