      Just installed brand new Koni coilovers, strut mounts, strut bearings, wheel bearings, ball joints, tie rods, and control arm bushings.

      About 200 miles of driving and the passenger side strut bearing is making a creak / moan / groan sound similar to an old wood floor or an old creaking door. It sounds like the bearing is moving in the rubber strut mount and making noise.

      Any ideas on what the problem could be? Over or under torqued? Bad brand new bearing???

      Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA

      What kind of control arm bushings did you install, poly or rubber?
