Now, 13 months and 22,000 miles later, the knocking noise has returned. Only over small, low speed bumps... Will be calling Bilstein tomorrow to start the warranty process over again. What a hassle. Plus I will be out another $500 or so in labor for the installation, alignment and return postage.

I am sorry...
Perhaps it is time to look into another suspension setup?
