Crunch sound at left front

Looks to me like someone has done a bit of butchering.

The OME trim packers look different and are yellow.

Your crunch sound has probably got something to do with this.

Does the other side have this rubber tubing on?

The car was in fact a Nissan Factory demo. The photo is the right (silent) side. On the left it came loose and I refitted it with cable ties, but the sound persists. It is not very loud or heard always on crossing a speed bump, but it annoys me.

Those rubber tubes should not be there, but more importantly they should not be necessary.

The coils should never touch each other, and it is the bump stop's job to prevent that.

If they are touching, then either the bump stop is damaged, or the springs are non-standard and too long.

If they are not touching, this is not the source of the noise.

Can bump stops be bought from any aftermarket (suspension) fitment center, or only from Nissan?

I suspect only Nissan?

Perhaps Marinus or Dawid Volschenk can help.
