Ever since I lowered my car I get this loud creaking noise when I turn the wheel either direction. Anybody know what is causing it and if it can be fixed??

I have H&R's and it does the same thing. We cant figure it out either. At first it was all the time and now its only when the air is moist or raining.

Bushings? Don't know the install procedure, but if you messed with the struts, could the bushings be bad, or not greased?

UPPER STRUT MOUNTS

had it happen to me w/ h&r and thats what it was. could also be that rubber piece that lays on the top of the spring is off aligned causing metal to rub when u turn.

is it loud the day after it rains? could be water in there as well.

I have new upper strut mounts. We put those in a week later becuase of the noise. It dint help none. Everything else checks out fine to.
