    I switched to ground control for my replacements.

      That's weird. Did you dial out the preload? You might want to add *slight* preload to see if the clunking stops.

        Yes, I took the slack out when the car was on the ground. Good idea though, I'll mess with them a little bit before returning them.

          Only thing I can think of is that the stud on the end link isn't sized right for your strut/sway. Might want to call up BW and ask. I've found them very helpful. I use them for most of the parts on our track car.

            I have Lemforder links, I should really take a caliper and measure the diameter to see if it's close enough to a standard thread size. At least if it's around 8 or 10 mm I could either do M8 or M10, if slightly smaller there is correspondingly 5/16 or 3/8. Might just be hard to find a LH thread M8 or M10 tap and die
