Angry Damn Suspension Noises Continue!!!

Hey Guys,

So far in the front end of my car I have replaced CAB's, control arms (meyle), and anti-roll bar links. Most all of my knocking/clanking sounds went away at first. I am replacing tie-rods this weekend which I think should eliminated the rest.

After only about 4 days of having both new control arms and sway bar links installed, it seems as though they are getting louder already! Mostly when I hit small bumps which I'm assuming means this is more the links than the arms.

My Question: I have searched and read a few threads in which people have suggested to "retorque" the arms and links. I don't know the torque specs but if anything, I overtightened them. Could this really create a noise issue? Also, if I overtightened them, are they ruined or do I just need to retorque?

Thanks!
