Front Suspension Squeaking

I recently lowered my car with a Eibach pro-kit, ever since I have had a squeaky noise coming from the front every time I go over a speed bump. It happens when I go over it and when the car comes back down no matter how slow I go. As a matter of fact it is more noticable if I go over it slower. My car only has 4000 miles on it so I am mind boggled on what it could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A squeak over a low speed bump is usually a sway bar d-bush. However, since you recently lowered your car you could be hearing a rubber bush protesting the new ride height. Did you install the coils yourself?

Yes i installed them but i just spoke with Bruce@Raymonds Performance he had mentioned to check the sway bar bushings since i lowered the car there might be tension on the bushing because of the ride height change.

Sorry this was my first time working with suspension so I dont know all the names for the exact parts. So my explanation probably isnt that good.

You are in good hands with Bruce. He is a TRUE professional. The Camaro OEM sway bar bushes are among the BEST I have ever seen. They are an unsually tight fit.
