Anyone have a clue? I called and isc said they would gladly send me a replacement strut but I really feel bad bothering them for 2 struts now that the passenger side is clicking too. I live in staten island so the roads are uneven and there are many small nicks and uneven surfaces in the road. My megans never made noise at all. They rode like **** but never apeep from them. Is there a way to get rid of this clicking clacking noise? Has anyone experienced this?
Thats what the warranty is for have them send the replacements!

yeah i would say the vast majority are without issue, but if you feel you have a product thats not up to par, there are always defects in such a large production run here or there, and the boys at ISC are great at fixing any issues our customers have.

Sounds like your clickers might actually need to be replaced. The small knobs threaded on the top shaft are actually what is responsible for making the clicking every time you turn the dampening knob.
Try taking them off and cleaning them, or check and see how tight/ loose they are.
Glad to hear you are enjoying them!

How low do these coilovers go?
ISC is right next door from me here in CT and really considering it.
Do these come with camber plates at all?

Yes I'll be looking to go stance

Just installed my n1 basics today, took my car around the block to see how they felt. as soon as this test drive began my front pass. side wheel starts making a weird whooshing sorta noise like metal slightly rubbing metal i kno this sound has nothing to do with the actual coilover they rode great. i got out and looked for any spot where it might be rubbing but found nothing since i didnt drop it crazy low. Just trying to see if anyone else experienced any rotational wheel noise after a coilover install?? could my wheel bearing have been affected? maybe cv axle? gunna check it out more tommorow. any answers would be appreciated

yea everything is nice n tight..the sound occurs at higher speed and when im goin about 5mph u can still hear it thats why i kno it has to do with the rotation of the wheel because the noise speeds up and slows down with the speeds that im driving,im about to go jack it up and check it out now thanks for the input tho

Give ISC a shout. Theyll be happy to help you out. However it does sound like you have a wheel bearing on the way out

well from what i can see n hear, its actually my brake pads slightly squeezing my rotors when im not even on the brake pedal,that would explain the "metal slightly rubbing metal" noise. i popped the bleeder valve to relieve some pressure and sprayed the disc with brake cleaner. im hoping theyll loosen up and stop rubbing after a few miles of driving. when i was done installing the coilovers n started my car the brake pedal did go to the floor (i assume it was bcuz of me moving the brake lines around during the install and some fluid was moved around inside the line?) but after 2 pumps of the pedal they were back to normal.just the noise that was worrying me. if it continues,how else can i relieve pressure from the pads so theyre not squeezing rotor? sorry that this is off topic of ISC's but i didnt know where else to ask!

Might be a caliper starting to seize. Just one side? Id try relubing the brake pins.

just ordered isc n1 basics. I am aware they do not come with camber plates but im not running an aggressive setup. MY wheels are 17x7.5. My question is, if i bring it to be aligned will they be able to do it or do i need camber bolts? thanks guys

Will a caliper that is seizing up vibrate like warped pads or rotors? I also had a metal on metal noise a few times after installing the ISC's, I have not heard that noise for a long time now that I think about it..

Any idea when the rear dampening adjustment extensions will be available? I have been looking forward to getting them since I got my coilovers last year...

Turned out it was actually the splash guard behind the rotor,its super thin metal and when i had my control arm jacked up during the install the jack pushed it against the rotor.no problems with the brakes

oh and these coilovers kick ass for the price, thanks alot IIR
