Front End Rattle
Guys - I lowered my car with the Pro-kit and installed revalved Bilsteins at the sametime. Since it has been back together I noticed a front end rattle. It only rattles when I go over a bump. I only hear a rattle when the suspension is being unloaded after a bump or when the wheel assembly is retracting to the road (after the bump). This may seem trivial to tighten everything I loosened but I have been back under the car numerous times being sure everything has been torqued back to spec. I am worried that I did not get the top nut on the shock rod tight enough. I left the same amount of threads visible when compared to the stock setup. I know the new spring/shock assembly was compressed when it went back into the car. Hopefully, this is not the problem. Any advice or had experience with this before?

Just an idea.
Did you make sure your lugs are tight?
I had a rattle noise and turned out that one lug was a little lose.
