Annoyingly it also cost me 66.00 to have it confirmed

I'm a tad disappointed with Bilstein, the cars only done approx 5-6k since having the kit fitted last Feb, and it looks like a shock absorber is already fubared!

Lets see how their lifetime warranty stacks up?
Whats the noise you are hearing?

Is it a heavy rattle that you can detect through the chassis?
Can you not hear it outside?
Only at low speed and not particularly regular?

If so I'll bet it is the strut top bearing and not the damper itself.

Open bonnet with car sat normally, put a finger down into the strut top and get another to lift up/push down on the inner arch - trying to lift the car.
If you detect ANY movement or feel the little clunk, its probably the top bearing.

I'll be amazed if the damper is making such noises.
In reality there isnt much inside that could do so.
