New KYB struts creaking/binding after 2k miles when making full turn
Kyb struts are making noise when turning all the way left or right. Didn't notice until about 2k of use.
I got these off Rockauto listed for 2008 LS Cobalt, which I have.
When I first went to put them on the frame bolts that go through into the engine bay didn't line up. So I put them on amd rotated the bottom to line up with sway bar link and knuckle.
Thought everything was good until now.
Is it possibly the center nut over torqued? These were full strut assemblies ready to go from KYB. What would be the best approach to this?
Maybe repositioning and swiveling the bottom part is causing a side effect.. Can those top stud be hammerd out and repositioned? There are empty holes on the spring top plate, to reposition the studs.. but sounds like way more work than this should be for buying the strut assembly, and spending more on KYB's. Had better luck last go with a cheaper brand, DTA.
