I have a rattle/squeek coming from the front of the car. Best I can tell it is suspension related. I have the Eibach Pro Kit installed. My fear is I somehow damaged the bearings in the upper strut mount. Has anyone had any experiences like this? It happens mostly when turning and at low speeds. If I am wide open on the highway, I cannot hear it. My plan is to get a replacement mount, but I wanted to see if I was on the right track.

It could be the springs binding. It can happen if they are not seated right.

Although I am not sure you tell if a bearing is bad, I suppose you'd have to take the strut/springs off the car to see.

Just nervous something will go wrong. Rather be safe than sorry, but yes it is annoying. I did see a TSB, where the top part of the strut was lubed for a squeak. Perhaps it can be that easy.
