Had lowering springs installed. Fully expected ride to change. But now I notice a 'chatter' in the front when going over bumps. As if something is loose?! I've been under the car. And looked over everything. It all seems good.. Anyone have similar issues?

Re: Eibach issue
Have nearly the exact car and did the install myself. No issues or noise following my DIY guide: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums...gs-eibach.html
Did you have the parts installed or do the work yourself?
The front springs should have been equipped with a rubber isolator on the 2nd and 3rd coil which should prevent any such noises. I would also turn the wheel full left and right and see if the spring is correctly lined up in the upper and lower perches. Both can be moved and will effect ride height and may effect spring bind or noise.
