    have you checked your bushes or even if its the upper mounting for the shock? its more likely to be the suspension arm bushes then the shock mounting bush but still worth a check

    Yes i’ve already check all rear bushes and they looks great, but i have a big noise like if something is moving, i have this noise only when i drive in bad roads, with holes
    Thanks you :)

    Then all i can say is grab everything and check further, if its still showing nothing then maybe you got a dead shock

    Shocks are both news, it’s since i changed them and put lower springs that the noise came...

    Sounds like you should go back over the install with a fine tooth comb then, if the noise was not present before the work done, then said work must be the issue..

    Yes i think too !
    I watched many diagrams for rear shocks, mine looks to be good (as diagrams).
    I’ve seen someone in DSMTuners says that the top bolt is difficult to put properly, and the spring couldn’t be properly tensionned.
    Someone have already seen that?

    all the bolts are easy to get to and do up, its just poor person skills normally, lack of skill and not thinking correctly most of the time, before i used to torque it all i didalot up tight, never once did i have an issue before,

    nothing really is hard to do up on this chassis, a little tricky sure but always possible 98% of the time,

    so re check your work and if unsure go ask someone for help who can assist you further to check your work you did to confirm its all ok, if you did it all up ok then the shocks are bad from the box or you are riding on your bump stops which is bad, without having the car in front of me or us we can only give you pointers, so spend hours if needs be taking it all apart and checking and this will make you better at working on cars from more knowledge and learning in future
