Clunking rattling sound after installing H&R Sport Springs

SOLVED- Just wanted to post conclusion incase anyone searching- turns out the sway bar link wasn't tightened back during the install..so now all is well no sounds at all!!



Just got my H&R sport springs professionally installed on my 2012 C250 sedan with 19" wheels.

There is a hard rattling & clunking noise coming rite around the passanger side tire or around the passanger side floor-it sounds like the front of the car is coming loose specially when hitting bumps... the shop checked & checked again and can't figure out what the problem is- checked the strut, the sway bar, made sure springs installed correct & we can't figure it out...told them about springs maybe binding or top mounts not installed correct & they checked for those issues & nothing...

They said to drive it few days maybe springs need to settle- There is alot of clearance so nothing is rubbing- i'm wondering if maybe the Quad Exhaust i installed last week maybe the culprit but doubt it and they checked for any marks showing if the exhaust is hitting the car-

So frustrating- H&R are quality springs so i dont believe thats the issue i've had H&R springs on my E60 530i before -

any ideas? suggestions?

It's clearly something that they have done...everything that was done needs a thorough check...It was fine before the install.
