    Noticing now with 3k km on the car, roll on power through 1-3 the front end is lifting a lot more than it did when it had less than 1k km. there is also a clunk left rear tower if the car hits a bit of a bump.
    Question: is it normal to have to make a preload adjustment when it's broken in?

    Sounds like you probably have an issue with the struts that will require replacement. I don't think you'll be able to 'adjust out' a noise, and with the car changing suspension angles that much (that you're noticing it like that), with that low of mileage, there is something wrong. Your car is new enough, it may be subject to warranty. May just be something loose (hopefully not)

    You can look at the shock and see if it may have blown or is leaking.

    Turns out there was an issue on the passenger side rear. The smaller spring had come out of place and was a little sideways :S ???
    Anyways no more noise and no more wheel stands when heavy on the throttle. :))
