I posted about this issue a while back but didn't get back many responses. I'm posting again because it seems that the problem has got progressively worse.

Whenever I make slow turns in my car I tend to hear a creaking or rubbing noise. does anyone know how this could be fixed?

I've had H-Techs on my car for a few months now and do not have this problem. Did you cut the bump stops when you installed the springs?

I used the factory bump stops as well. I believe the springs state which corner they should go on, did you make sure that they were installed in the correct corner?

I didn't do the installation but I did verify with the shop who did that they were installed correctly. I also called up Tein and they said it is most likely the bearings near where the springs connect to the struts. Can anyone verify that this may be the problem? I plan on bringing the car to the shop sometime this week and would like to tell what they may want to look for.
