I have Stance GR+ coilovers on my 05xt with cobb front and rear sway bars. I live in Wisconsin and its right about the time of year where the temperature is lingering right around 33 degrees. I know that there is oil in the coilovers and throughout the winter i've dealt with a very bumpy ride. Today it got to about 40 degrees and I noticed that when I was driving, there was a popping noise in my coilovers. It was more prominent while take turns at 5-10 MPH and just turns in general. I could also hear it when I came to a complete stop.

Could this be from the temperature change and the springs have to adjust to the warmer weather?

Or is something broken in the coilover?

Any other ideas?

it is coming from the upper pillowball mounts (camber plates).

this is something that is 100% coilover related and honestly nothing you can do much about. keep the upper mounts clean and lubed with some wd40, silicone spray, or whatever.

oh, and welcome to the world of coilovers :p
