how low did you go? if you went really low then it could be bottoming out 'cuz the stock shox can't handle that kind of load

well, i installed mine a couple weeks ago and i have some occasional noise from the rear when i go up or down driveways. i rechecked all the bolts and they were all torqued to toyota spec and the coilovers had no signs of improper installation. my brother, who's installed quite a few suspensions and is a mechanical engineer, said it's normal. as long as it's not a constant noise (like hearing it all the time while driving) it should be okay.

you may have to remove them to be sure EVERYTHING was torqued properly and installed correctly. if installed professionally then bring it back. if you did it yourself then it should be a 30-45 min job if you have the right tools. good luck.
