Had springs installed a few weeks ago and I think it was around then that I noticed a knocking sound coming from behind the dash/engine compartment area. It's only at low speeds (like 5-10 in a parking lot), more noticeable in turns, and isn't there on a cold start. It only happens after I've been driving for at least 20 minutes. So yesterday, I drove around all day and then heard it when I came home. Went inside for an hour and came back out and it was still there. Went somewhere else and the car was sitting for a few hours and then the noise was gone on the way home. Could it be my AC? Everything else is stock except springs and short shifter and Stage 1 AP. Do stock sways "walk"?

Alright, I'll work on the video but it might be tough to pick up on cell phone video. It's kinda like someone tapping their ring on the window and a relatively slow interval. Just weird that it never happens on the cold start.

Stock lugs on the wheels. They're swift springs, so I shouldn't have to worry about bump stops or any of those spacers from the factory. Strut bolts are checked and they're fine.

The sound you described sounds like the bov is hitting the strut tower brace...had the same thing happen when I installed my intake. Just a thought...

And here I was, just having read Jordan's inspiring story about Lallen as the knight in shining armor, thinking that you had turned the corner towards a gentle and empathetic soul! Maybe it's just me? What does Jordan have that I don't?
