Default noisey *** h&r race springs on 99 accord coupe!!!!

Does anyone have the h&r springs on a 99 accord coupe????The drop looks real nice, but the rear springs are very clunky...I know its cause they are wound so close together, and the coils literally sit on top of each other when the car is on the ground...Has anyone expierenced this, and if so any way to fix the problem, or am I stuck with a noisey rear suspension??????Also, the rear coils came wrapped with some kind of material that looks like it is supposed to keep the lower coils from chattering, but it does not seem to be helping much........thanks

the shocks are stock.....However, like I said its the coils that are physically touching each other...Its not a shock problem, but more of the metal on the springs rubbing together...

Riding on stock shocks? That could be the problem.
