    Question about JDM V7 struts and springs.

    I recently purchased a set of these and installed them on my 03 wrx. The driver side front strut has a clunk to it and was curious if these are known to have that? I also installed STi alum. control arms and a 24mm front sway with solid endlinks when i installed the struts and springs. I have gone through numerous times checking the torque on everything just to be sure.
    help?

    I assume they are the v7 STi inverted struts? If so, did you take them apart, clean and regrease them?

    If not, that will likely be your issue. It typically occurs on the rear to to the grit & grim, but the design is the same on the front, so no saying it couldn't happen.
