front strut banging

Suspension and Steering

Vehicle Information: Model: 911 carrera; Year: 1984; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 153000;

just replaced my front strut inserts [bilstein orginal ] with new sport bilstein inserts.this was a pretty straight forward simple job until i drove the car a few miles less than 10 and both sides started banging. i went back and checked tightness at top mounting nut and it was fine. i then disconnected and checked to make sure roll pin caught properly at bottom again oki then went to my favorite front end shop and we determined noise is comming from the top mount. thinking that threads may not be allowing for enough tension [not long enough] i installed 2 large washers at the top ofnthe dust cover andnre tensioned no luck still get the banging. i had none of this with the old inserts which look almost identical to the new ones any ideas
