Coilover help please

Guys with coilovers i have a couple questions for you?

Do your coilovers rub? Meaning does the coil hit the shock and rub on it while driving making noises? Mine seem to be getting worse and worse and i am not sure how to fix it.

They even sound as if they are popping now and making really funny noises. I have no idea what is going on but it is driving me nuts.

Thanks for any help!

if you have a single spring they shouldnt rub the shock body. If you have dual rates the spacer between the different springs will rub the shock body and make some noise. If its that noticeable you can probably see where its rubbing via it scratching the shock body. spring might be bent or off the bottom plate, ie not sitting flat.

its probably the 4 link joints making the noise.grease them up real good and the noise will go away.I thought it was the springs popping also,turn out to be the joints needed to be greased.

I think it is my 4 link arms that need to be greased real good. I may have to take them off and grease them then put them back on to make sure i get everyhting in there good.

I would try this but my truck has been at the dealer for almost 2 weeks now.
