    Default Noise after installing Koni/Prokits

    Hi there,

    I recently got my Koni / Pro-Kit setup installed, and loving the new drop.

    However, while I'm driving I'm hearing a squeaking noise coming from the front driver wheel side. It has a ticking pattern but in a high pitched noise.

    When I press on the brake though, it goes away, but another noise comes on which is a more grinding sound.

    On top of this, before coming from a complete stop, I can hear a creaking sound coming from the front end. It seems to be centered.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Give it some time to adjust given that you had a trusted mechanic do the work. Mine did the same thing but eventually stopped all the creaking and squeaking.

    Replaced my brakes and rotors all around, and all noise are gone. The pads on the rears were down to zero and the slider pins were seized.

    Replace the fronts with OEM pads and aftermarket rotors, while the rears have been replaced with Max pads and rotors.

    Thanks for the input guys!
