    That's actually more of a function of the Hoosier A6's the the GC.

    stupid me.... I didnt even look yesterday

    My biggest issue and really only issue, because I know that the thump is an easy fix; is the squeaking coming from the front drivers side area. Whenever I am at low speeds it squeaks and grinds. Almost sounds like it's falling apart and is super loose. They were pretty tightly bolted together before they were put back in though : /

    That was my only issue, the squeak. For me, I panicked as I got it as I was leaving for a track day at GingerMan...13 hours away. I ended up bringing it to my shop and spent a few hours diagnosing it and canceled my trip. It's the bushing. Grease the hell out of it every couple weeks for a couple months. It should eventually age and die down.

    After a year or so I went out for a long drive and heard it for the first time in a while. Ends up it acts up when it rains. But once it's been in there, even in the rain you can't hear it unless you're at low speed with the radio off. Like the B&B drone, it became a non-issue with time.

    Just grease the hell out of that bushing...

    My bad. I'm too busy celebrating the Pats loss. I meant the bump stop, not the bushing...

    No problem. It's a good kit if you're prepared and address the potential noises. I really liked mine...

    I love my GC's. Zero issues, no noises (got lucky). Cars stance is perfect and handles great.

    thinking about going with the ADDCO sways to tighten up the remaining body roll. still seems a little shakey on bumps/dips at higher speeds. anyone else with that issue??
