    I bet if you remove your sway bar it'll stop.

    Really? I can see that being a thing at higher speeds, while cornering, but it even rattles at 5mph going over cracks in the road...I can give it a try...when it warms up a bit and I have time...later this week or next week, but if I can, I think I would like to have the springs and the sway bar.

    What's your logic? I wondered if the bolts sway bar bolts might interfere with the fit of the spring, but I suspect that's not what you're getting at.

    I was afraid to strip the threads or crush the lower mount of the damper, so I didn't tighten it enough. Last night in frustration, I tightened it another 1/4 to 1/2 turn. No more rattle!

    Here I am again, with the weight questions lol. New ones lighter or heavier? Looking at the difference the lowering springs has made is incredible. I've had D2 racing coilovers in my Neon before I sold it and with it being lowered, it made the car more aggressive which is what I'd want to do with my Mirage. Lowering the Mirage is something I've been wanting to do for quite some time. Now weight, is my biggest priority. If you happen to know I'd appreciate it. Trying to chose between this and Godspeed coilovers. Thanks.

    I didn't weigh them. But there really not much smaller. This isn't a weight savings thing...
