    Angry New Suspension. Now Annoying Creaking!

    got my Bilstein B4s & -35mm Apex springs fitted today with new drop links and track rod ends + spring sleeves on upper & lower parts of front springs. Now there is an annoying creaking noise coming from both of the front suspension. And its blooming loud too! My question is for how long can i expect this annoyance to last?

    PaZ!

    If it's when turning then it'll be the top strut bearings and they need changed as the noise wont go away.

    i purchased new ARB bushes but the mech didnt change them as mine were in good condition. i was going to buy strut top bearings but the mech told me not to worry bout them coz if they were worn he would just buy and fit them for me if needed. the noise its making is like a FROG, its really weird, and its noticable when im driving over objects doesnt matter if your steering or not. i've popped the hood and given it a good push down it makes the noise then aswell. im thinking its the rubber on the new components such as the drop links etc...

    PaZ!

    Are the spring sleeves fitted? Rubber sleeves that sit on the bottom of the spring coil that sits in the strut. Was a mod to stop clunking noises when going over bumps etc.
