Fixed! - 2012 Steeda Rear Sway Bar Loud Popping

So I installed the RSB Sunday afternoon. No problems driving around Monday or Tuesday morning, but driving home Tuesday night, I made a slow turn into a shopping center and heard a loud BANG or pop come from the rear end. Driving the rest of the way home I had a few more, softer, pops during turns. I'm pretty freaked out I messed up my car!

I did some internet research and realized I tightened everything down with the car in the air (unloaded), rather than on the ground, so is that probably the problem? I missed that part on the install sheet. I didn't see anything broken back there when I looked.

In my reading, people seem to think that noises from your suspension are normal when you upgrade components? Is that true? Should I expect some popping?
