Squeak noise after lowering springs

So I lowered my 02 V6 with H&R Super Sports and replaced the shocks and struts, now everytime my struts compress (going over a bump) I hear a squeak noise coming from the struts, is this normal?

Did you tape the ISO's to the springs? They could have moved and that's metal on metal squeaking you're hearing

No, I may be wrong. But I did hear if you didn't replace chamber plates while doing lowering springs it'd cause some noise / bumpy ride.

That's why I got cc with my lowering springs to prevent that.

But since you said you already did cc. I guess you're fine in that area.

To be honest its the isolators causing the noise....they are poly not rubber I believe which are notorious for noise. You'd be better off without isolators. I don't use them and have no noise issues.

Well as long as it's only the isolators... Besides, you can only hear the noise while there's no music playing and 90% of the time i'm playing music in the car!
