I installed the full pro system including sways on my svt 2 weeks ago all was fine till i made a long journey to PA on wed i hit a large bump in road at speed and it cracked very loud and now even the slightest bump produces the worst clanks and sounds from my car and the paint on the tops of the strut towers is all cracked and peeling off like it has been under extreme stress but yet everything appears to be as it should nice and tight nothing loose and my steering feels heavy and not precise. has this happened to anyone else?

I had a similiar accident in my car. I had to replace the shocks and sturts and the noise went away. What may have happened is you hit the pot hole and it casued the spring to expand enough to wear under pressure the bottom is like trying to go over the damper. expecially when turning it sounding like something was being flung from side to side.
