Clunking noise

New to clubrsx, tried looking around the forum for a reason why I hear a clunking noise from my front right coil overs. I’m currently on F&F2 and Rota Grid p45f. Everything was installed by previous owner, so I honestly don’t know much about suspension or rims at all.

Put the car on jack stands, take off the wheels, and use a pry bar to start wiggling stuff until you find a loose bolt or ball joint.

Also check your motor mounts could be loose or broken and itís the engine moving around.

I have the same problem, I do believe the rsx is known for the top strut mount to go bad, try this. Worked for me.

Take a loot at your bushings too. My clunk was due to a torn compliance bushing.

If the lower lock ring is loose at all, it will also clunk.
