Nitron 'clanking' noises - Ride/Handling/Suspension/Brakes/Wheels/Tyres - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content

Hi all,

I've tried some Nitrons (46's and now Clubsport 40's) for the first time this year on my 2015 Exige V6, and over really harsh 'jolts' like a squared off ridge in a road, I get a 'clank' noise.

Most of the time however they are quiet.

Does anyone else have Nitrons, and do you have this same issue?

I was thinking it is because these are rose jointed as opposed to having rubber bushes.

Also the noise seems to improve as they 'warm' up! ... Odd.

Also does anyone know a decent place to get corner weighting done near to Reading, Berkshire.

I have 3 way Nitrons and the helper springs occasionally clank particularly when Rebound/Bump is relaxed for a road setup. Might be that.

Would definitely recommend Hoffmans in Henley 15mins from Reading. They fitted mine with their bespoke piston/valving and did a good track/fast road Geo.
