    Default Re: Tightening front suspension strut have I, tightened it to much?

    Assuming the springs are the correct ones for the car then you should not change them. The car is designed to carry two adults plus luggage which could be well above 200lbs, so springs are most unlikely to be the problem. Even if the car was sitting on it's bump stops it shouldn't be rattling.

    What makes you think the rattle is actually coming from the strut? Have you actually ruled out the usual causes of rattling such as drop links or worn track rod balljoints on the steering rack?
