Question about Home
I replaced both cartridges (hot and cold) and the shower still leaks
Leaks are where the joints are not sealing and water escapes. When putting joints back together without adding a sealant or teflon (PTFE) tape, they will sometimes leak. Take the joints apart again and use a small amount of a paste designed to seal joints, spread on the threads of the joints. Tighten them firmly once and let the compound set for 10 minutes before turning on the water.

SOURCE: I replaced a Moen shower
The cartridge is the culprit. Replace it with an OEM Moen cartridge. What happens is that some replacement cartridges may not operate the same as the moen brand when they are in the closed position. This can sometimes result in the water hammer effect you are experiencing. Change the cartridge and it should alleviate the problem. If it doesn't work let me know and we will go at it from a different angle.

SOURCE: I bought the Danco replacement
Sometimes on the stems on the side the handle attaches is a nut that can be tightened. Inside this nut is a rubber or other type of seal. tightening this nut stops the water from coming out of the handle. If the nut has already been tightened then possibly need to replace this rubber seal.
