New struts and lowering springs

Well today I just installed new monroe shocks all around with new mounts, front and rear. Installed 1inch Phastek lowering springs, now I'm getting a bad squeak. Could it be rear sway bar links? I replaced the fronts. Also the washer on top under the hood; is there an upgrade for it? It seems like the washer isnt flush, maybe the noise could come from there?
Advice , help, please.
Thanks

Did you tighten the suspension loaded with the cars weight?

Just the front shocks, there's no way to tighten the rear under load right?

If you're wearing stock bushings, you need to make sure they're 'timed' properly.


That means loosening up some bolts after installing your lowering springs, then letting the car settle with full weight on all wheels, then tightening while weight is on said wheels.


If you don't do this properly, you risk squeaks and hops and uneven lowering. Search up 'timing your bushings' for more info.

Don’t forget an alignment!! You’ll eat some tires up if you don’t (ask me how I know). When getting aligned have the alignment tech do a once over on your work to make sure everything is tightened up properly.
