[DML] Coil spring question

Last weekend I rebuilt the front suspension on my DeLorean. The 
following work was completed:

1. Upper/lower ball joints with Grady reenforcement collars.
2. Upper/lower control arm bushings.
3. Control arms boxed in.
4. New front shocks (the "Marty M." kit).

Also not long ago, the tie rod ends and sway bar bushings were 
replaced. The rear shocks haven't been replaced yet due to time 
constraints but will be soon.

Ever since I put the car back together, if I hit a speed bump or 
pothole (at reasonable speeds), the passenger front coil spring 
makes a loud "DONG!" sound, and a second later, a softer "dong!" as 
if it's popping back into it's seat.

I am absolutely certain that I did NOT mix up the springs and 
install them on the wrong sides or upside down. I was paranoid about 
that for just this reason. However, the seed of doubt has been 
planted. Repeated visual inspections show nothing obviously wrong.

I know that some of you have done this job. Anyone ever have this 
problem? Any suggestions? Thanks.
