PSS10 owners plesae chime in..others also feel free to

Hey guys, so I had the pss10 kit installed for about a month now...from day one I had this weird popping/clicking noise as I turned. the steering wheel. Noise only occurs when stationary or at low speed(under 10km/h). I brought it back to my shop to have them check it out and they told me it was spring binding. From what I was told it's just annoying rather than any real problem...They spent 2 hours trial testing the options and springs; taking apart everything to no avail. I spoke with Eugene-Taiwan, who seems to have a similar problem. I've also spoke with Turner Motorsport(whom I bought the kit from), and they don't have this issue on there car.

So I'm wondering if other PSS10 owners have this issue...

What's the ride and the handling like with the PSS10's?

Have you done a track day with them?

Are they easy to adjust?

How do they compare with stock for just driving around?

The ride feels more comfortable(setting is at 4 rear, 5 front) than stock, it doesn't feel harsh when you ride over bumps and uneven road surface, but when you take turns it feels tighter and more composed(for reference I had KW V3's on my last car - they feel about the same)

Have you done a track day with them?
I haven't tracked with them yet because I do not have confidence in my manual driving on the track yet(first stick)

Are they easy to adjust?
I've always thought PSS9/10 was great for adjustability but having a look at the rears they dont look like it's something I can do without removing the wheels, if not the whole unit

How do they compare with stock for just driving around?
As I mentioned it's a lot more comfortable driving around, this was something my girlfriend pointed out, I definitely prefer them over stock all around

Ya, it happens after some driving. I don't get any sounds know either.

I love the way how it rebounds a very nice stiff feeling.
