Top Hats Question

hey guys i have a 09 cobalt ls coupe. I put kw coilover v2 on it and slamed it about 2-3 in. the problem i have is that the struts bounce inside of the top hats. I was wondering if there is a cure for this or does some one make solid top hats. you can hear the springs radling too. thanks

they should be ok, did you re-use the rubber bushing and bearing plates?

Also, the spring is held in tension by the perch nut thingie ma-bob, made sure there is at least a little tension on it.

don't re-use the top nuts ever! and always use loc-tite blue or a pin head of red to make sure they don't loosen. if there is play, kw must have sent the wrong parts or you just haven't tightened the strut nut on the rod right!
