The issue emerged after I installed the coilovers. May be a month after installation.
The shop installed the fronts in the first instance. But when I changed the top mounts, I did it myself. Everything else I did it.
No impact gun was used by me or shop during installation. I have a 22mm socket that I made by cutting the middle out to hold the allen key and torque it properly at the strut mount bolt. The shop laughed at me for doing that, but I made them use it. When doing the mounts the second time, I did it myself because I knew I didnt have to use the spring compressors.
Can you give me the part numbers from the springs? What torque rating did you use?
