uh, turn your stereo up, then you won't hear it =) you'll probably get more noise and a rougher ride. I have sportlines, and i deal with it. It doesn't bother me, and i think it's worth it.

Fix your original issue before you put the springs on.

Any 'clunking' noises you're hearing are prolly from a completely unrelated issue (as stated above). I just put the sportlines into my car and I'm loving it! Its noticeably lower and looks good but its not so low that you scrape over every little bump. Like I've said before I live in an area with like a million frickin speedbumps (pretty unforgiving ones too) and they aren't a problem for me
So long story short fix your car and put on the sportlines, you'll love em!
