04 STi Springs Making Noise

When I bought my car I was told the springs make noise. The reason for the noise is supposed to be by design since they're STi springs. Can anybody shed light on this? Its just occasional clunks or pops under acceleration. Never any other time I've noticed. No noticeable handling issue's because of it.

It's a normal issue for the 04-07 STi... not sure about 08+ models. I believe it's actually the struts, not the springs. It doesn't really affect performance, but if the noise bothers you enough, you could always upgrade them.
