Adjusted the coilovers a little now it has some mileage, and chased an annoying rattle around the rear door area, if anyone has an idea where to start i'd be grateful, There is literally nothing that can rattle, But its ****ing rattling its head off.

Been there and can’t find an issue, I’ve just removed the “door stay” and taped the catch/striker, will find a bumpy road tomorrow , if not I’ll chuck a small family member in the back till they pin point it 😂

It might be that one of the barn door catch/latch things need adjusting a tiny bit.

Broadmoor, looking at your Caddy I think that I need to drop my rear end one more notch.....

I run the standard VW hangers, didn’t like the look of the multi position ones that came in the kit, sits just right at the rear for me

I never thought that the original hangers might offer the correct ride height that I like. I will offer the original hangers up to the multi point hangers and see if they do as you say. Cheers.

@ broadmoor, I know it sounds obvious but have you checked your side jack? I have to tighten mine quite often, it rattles like a swine when loose
