rear springs banging

Mon Nov 12, 2018 7:41 pm

hello my first post, here goes recently bought a BMW X3 2.5I SPORT M54 2.5 Series: X3 (E83) with a load of problems, most of which I fixed but am stumped on one...

the car just failed the mot on a cracked rear spring, so I ordered a new pair off but noticed when they arrived they were much bulkier than the original ones although fitted perfectly. So fitted them, however, know whenever i go over a bump or steep around a corner they bang or make a snapping sound like they aren't aligned correctly. I taken them off twice and turned upside down and swapped sides to see if it makes a difference, which it doesn't so can't work out what the prob is, any ideas lads?
