Snap, crackle, pop!!!

Hey, guys and gals,

I just lowered my 2007 Focus ST, 48,XXX miles onto FRPP ZXM1 lowering springs, retaining the stock SVT shocks.

Now, I get a crap load of creaking, popping and crackling when I turn the steering wheel at low speeds, and sometimes and moderate speeds. The popping can be super loud, so it really is annoying.

Does anyone know if this is the strut bearing doing this? I re-used my strut bearings, because there was no noise prior to lowering the car.

Any thoughts?
