Also, I spoke with Koni NA regarding the shortened stroke range of their sport (yellow) shocks due to the lowering perches and my EPK springs. Their response is that they will be fine. As a preventive measure (so that the bumpstops don't prematurely wear out) I will be replacing my OEM bumpstops with the shorter ones from the M cars.
There should be no noises at all. Did the installer put in the dome washer w the rounded side pointing up between the spring top hat and the top strut mount?
