are you using the upper spring seat from the stock struts(sorta like a metal frisbe plate)?

if yes make sure its on correctly...its supposed to lock in with the struts....to me it sounds like thats the problems

also make sure all the bolts are torqued down to proper factory specs

yeah I had that problem, but it went away. I thought at first I was scrapping the ground. Just yesterday I got another problem in that everytime I go over a speedbump or something similar, it sounds like I got a flat tire. Any suggestions?

yeah, make sure you use a spring compressor, because if you do it yourself, it's very easy for the spring not to sit properly and produce that kinda sound
