Creaking noise after lowering springs

When I turn there seems to me a slight creaking like noise coming from the passenger side front wheel area. It's expecially noticeable when not moving. Kind of embarrassing really... It's nothing horrible sounding but I'm picky about my car. I've done research but was gonna see if anyone has had this problem before I tackle it tom. I have even been told it's normal with new springs. Have about 100 miles on new springs and it was an inch drop. Using stock struts and shocks as well as strut mounts btw

Using OEM stocks struts and mounts could be the problem. I get noise while going up and down my driveway every time

You must have reused the stock strut mounts. That's your problem.

Thanks fellas. Yes sir I did. Doing some suspension upgrades in the future so I'll cover that as well. Hopefully it won't be too bad until then though

Shouldn't be too bad. I know everyone's car is different but rarely do I get any noise
