from what ive seen they just have a loose spring sitting on a threaded tube. common for most coilovers and the noise is common too. To illiminate that u need coilovers that allow you to keep the preload tight and the spring compressed and u actually twist the shock body to lower it. Buddy club, k sport, and several others are making coilovers this way now.

My kw v1 has been making nudging noises during the first several feet of vehicle movement after its been parked for atleast 15mins. No noise over bumps or anything besides that.

Annoying and I want to fix it but heard its a common issue with these coilovers?
