    Is there any reason why someone would of installed the top coil plate incorrectly?

    Or just a stuff up ?

    White dots were applied for some reason ?

    Dots probably applied when the springs were installed.

    Usually the arrow indicates the inside of the vehicle (or the outside, i always get that stuff mixed up haha) as some top hats are not symmetrical with their bolt patterns and the spring perches are also often offset so the spring doesn't sit centrally around the shock absorber so if the top and bottom perches are not lined up, the spring will sit funny or not properly.

    Cheers thanks Cozzm0 ,

    Just another update :

    Got a Mechanic to Replaced wheel bearing with New one .
    And I installed a set of nolathane red sway bar link bushes today .

    AND Still has the single crack/ pop noise when braking and taking off , only happens once , not a continuous noise

    Running out of ideas and no one locally seems to know where the noise is coming from ....

    Man that sucks ! Maybe its actually a spot weld cracking or something else like some movement in the subframe. All this kind of thing is really hard to remotely diagnose, but the fact that you were able to replicate it should have made it a lot easier to track down for the mechanic with a stethescope probe type implement.

    Cheers , took it to a genuine Nissan workshop yesterday and I will be buggered , they fixed it ,
    Very happy.

    Loose K frame bolt ! So yes it was flexing.

    All the other mechanics missed it .

    Wow glad you got it sorted eventually (and ironically a suggestion i didnt think it would be so i didn't mentioned the subframe until now...), but such a cost involved with the hit and miss mechanics.

    Yes when 4 different mechanics looked at the car and replaced a few things you would think they would of checked over all those places ( as I asked them to) , but anyway all good now and happy .
