Why are my KW sleeves clunking like crazy?

I had kw sleeves put on and now there is constant clunking. Whenever im below 50mph and hit any small bump or imperfection in the road it will clunk violently. Does anyone know what is going on?

Because they're some of the most overrated lowering options for these cars.

There are a lot of possibilities. Spring may not be seated, sway bar is binding are the most likely culprits.

Because you are using the oem camber plate and the spring is binding on the sleave

get an aftermarket camber plate and some spring thrust washers
