    Popping noise when going 10mph....

    So when i roll to a stop or going less than 10mph there is a distinct popping noise coming from the rear of my wagon. Not from the exhaust but from suspension. I have HKS 3 way adjustable coilovers. Its a 2002 WRX wagon. Any ideas as to what this sound could be? I donít only hear the sound i can also feel something not right. I looked under the rex quickly last night and everything looked ok visually. Any specific areas i should look at? Ideas? Suggestions?
    Thanks and much appreciated.

    OK... So i narrowed it down to the coil overs beign the culprit. Any thing specific i need to look for when looking at the coilovers? Do the HKS hypermax RS coilovers need to be greased? I was told that greasing them will make the noise go away. I have a hard time believing that. Any other suggestions? comments?

    Checked. It is not those. Defnitly the coilovers. In fact the sound is coming from near the top of the coilover.

    Make sure they are on there tight, they could be loose and moving around when you hit a bump...
