How did you assemble the strut?
Both are doing it but the right one is worse and louder.

I compressed the spring, put it on the strut, put on the top hat, bearing and strut mount. I got the strut nut on fairly right and released the spring compressor. I then tightened down the strut nut real tight and installed it on the car. I then was able to get the nut to tighten another 1/4 turn on each side once in the car.
