You could try putting the new original equipment back in

1. They just fit.

2. They are quality brands like Monroe, Pedders, KYB when you trace it back that have been tested for years before and during manufacture of the car and have to meet the car warranty requirements.

I posted about same issue a couple of weeks back. I'm guessing it's the aftermarket bearings that I installed causing the noise. I bought some pedders bearings and greased them up pretty good. Haven't installed them yet but hopefully it'll take care of the noise.

Rubber mounts do vary in quality, but in the end they Always Fail. The Superpro is the most durable with stock height and close to stock rubber feel.

Make sure the spring mounts are clocked properly! Notches toward the center of the car.
