Hi, gents.
Patient is a 1999 VW bug.
Issue is a RF susp. spring that makes bouncy, springy noises, as if wound
and abruptly released, when turned mostly to extreme R or L during
steering. This began 3-4 months after swapping both front struts, strut top
bearings and bushings, springs were re-used. Took care aligning them in
their seats. Top strut nut is tight as are all other nuts and bolts,
nothing untoward happens during driving, only during slow driving, when
parking. No noises during bouncing the body at the RF corner. This does not
happen all the time but almost always it happens, when the car is on an
incline - mountainous area here.
Same thing happened to the RF of a Porsche 944 I did the same job to many
years ago.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.
