On the upside though, I am finally happy with the ride height

Talked to Albert, buddyclub's head tech and the bad news is that the coilovers will always make noise. He said because it uses a pillowball it's unavoidable, and that even his car, which also has the racing spec coilovers, makes noise... So I guess there's the answer

That's why I asked if you could measure it. It's probably cheap and undersized for the loads.

Possibly. Think I'm going to just use the stock tophats in the rear. I'm not losing any camber adjustment by doing that, so I may just go that route. It's been almost a month trying to straighten this out and I'm tired of it. The car has spent more time on jackstands than driving. Also today the temp dropped from the 60s yeaterday down to the 30s and the rears sounded like a WWII tank clunking around on the way home from work. Extremely displeased. I understand there are sacrifices that have to be made for performance but this seems excessive

Does anyone know if you need any new parts to use the stock tophats? Can you use the stock ones with any coilovers? and what are your thoughts on doing this?

I'll have to check mine to see if I'm encountering the same issue.

Even high end Ohlins makes noise, so don't get too upset on your Buddyclub. LOL
