i also haven't done wheel alignment after lowering because i am planning to do fast road setup in months. Or best to do some local standard alignment for time being?

quick google revealed sub frame as well link

how much it cost if frame is knackered?

As for clicking I just tightened my subframe nothing else and it's been good for 9months. It only made click on braking and excellarating though, not turning. Are springs fitted properly? As for them bushes I got some polybushes from tegiwa. Cost more but last forever so that won it for me.

Cheers mate, I will first see how it plays after tightening subframe. Can you tell me where this yellow bush is installed? The garage just returned saying they r shorter then OEM and can't be fitted.

Don't know why they say they couldn't fit the new bump stops, I fitted mine absolutely fine.
They simply slot into the top mounts and the rubber boot is fitted onto it.

I only have two bump stop that came with springs. Don't know is it for front or rear. iirc ebiach bump stop had smaller diameter than OEM front ones.

The Eibach one had a smaller length but same diameter for me.
And they are only on the front, no bump stops on the rear.

Update.

after greasing gap between two parts of subframe, the sound is gone. I will also change D bush and drop link which i reckon are knackered at this mileage.

Sorry I didn't took any pics during the process but it was 10 mins job. If u follow the service bulletin (the link is in previous comments) it is straight forward, thought mine was done by mate who is a mechanic.
