Ford Racing Suspension

Good morning,
I just installed the ford racing suspension. Love it, it's a lot better in the corners. But since the install it's been creaking and popping going over bumps and up drive ways. Is this normal? If not what can I do to fix it?
Thank you for any help.

Did you replace the strut mounts?

its possible you did not tighten down the strut mount to the strut enough which would cause the problem you are talking about.

When working on suspension there is also a problem with over tightening. If any part of a sway bar or control arm that might have gotten over tightened (any part for that matter). It can produce a creaking or squeaking.

Please don't judge. It was a loose bolt on the clamp for the sway bar. Tightened up fixed the problem. I thank everyone for the help and suggestions.
