Yeah, I thought it sounded like the usual suplex problems. I have written reams about these particular items, none of it complimentary.

Search suplex on the forum. 

Suffice it to say that the dampers are not fit for purpose, due to being copies of the original mgf damper which was designed to work with hydragas, not coil springs. Then bodged to make them sort of work...
The clonking is most likely the spring seat contacting the canister.

You can look forward to your rear damper top mounts cracking away from the panel...

Fortunately, 2 years ago I fitted a new set of Trophy spheres all round so still on hydragas.

Any longterm feedback on the Mike Satur solution (the suplex alternative)?

Ive not heard any negative reports on the Mike Satur system, or the Aussie system. Only positive so far...

I've installed Mike Satur's FCCKit in both of our Fs.  I installed one in February, 2019 and the other in June, 2019, so two driving seasons so far and my wife and I are very impressed with the ride quality that the coilover kit provides.
