Had the OME lift installed yesterday. Drive home from installer all was good. Drive into work this AM was good too, until I got to the parking garage and went over those stupid speed bumps (3 in a row). There was a definite clunk on the passenger side. I took them all at very slow speed, as I always do. Same thing on the way back out tonite.
Did a quick inspection when I got home, and the first thing I noticed is the the bump stops were halfway down the strut shaft on both sides. Is it possible that that is the cause, or at least part of it?
When I initially heard the cluck I figured it would be due to the the top nut on the strut not being tightened down enough. Maybe both are the issue?
I pressed the bump stops back in as far as I could. Is there anything that can be done to make sure they stay put?
I'm going to take back to the installer tomorrow, but any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
EDIIT: one more question - the instructions online say there should be 3-4 threads exposed at the top of the strut nut, but the searching I've done on here some have gotten 7 to 11. Safe to say 3-4 isn't enough?
