sounds like you are hitting the bump stops to me..... which means that your shocks are not able to travel like they should, which results in a loud bump & a hard bang on the suspension......

honestly I don't know because it may just be the combination of reds and your coilovers. yellows and skunk2 or ground controls work good together I don't know about what you have. talk to people with the same setup. I think that it could be the combination of the twoyour spring are to stiff and when you hit a bump you could be bottoming out your shocks. you said that they are adjustable try making them stiffer

Are you driving around slammed? If you are, raise it. That's the problem. You should know this by now, if not, someone should donkey punch you.

If you are not slammed, check for binding anywhere or check for any wear spots around the body.

sometimes you can tell when a car has coilovers vs up graded shocks because it may do just that over bumps. I would mess with the height and the shock, but it may just be the coilovers. You could sell you coilovers and shocks on ebay and buy a full shock/coilover.
