Did you go back and check for loose bolts?, grab the control arms and try to muscle them around to check for movement

Did they come with new bushings?

[B]What brand did you buy????I
I was just wondering if they came with new very hard rubber bushings and that may be the problem. Are there instructions ? Maybe someone has already been through a thing like this and hopefully can help you out.

PS: I just went to American Muscle and they show a video and say that they may make some noise.

AM shows some installation instructions for the ones they sell.

idk man. it mainly occurs during deceleration. I hope I didn't f*** anything up and I hope the upper control arm jus needs readjusting.
