control arms

so i just installed rear lower control arms and took the car out for a test drive and now my right axle is ticking like crazy, any information on why this happened? my car is lowered but i thought they were supposed to take stress off the axles and they were fine right before installing the control arms :/

What kind of control arm? Billet aluminum or stamped steel? Factory swaybar end links or aftermarket? Is the ticking sound like the tire/axle rotating or due to the suspension articulating?

Recheck torques on everything regardless.

steel control arms, factory everything else, when i press the gas no sound and ride is quiet but when i hit bumps and dips it ticks and crackles, and when i turn to the left and all the weight transfers to the right itís loud ticking during the duration of the turn, my left axle is fine no noises or anything just the right one

Hard to tell on my end, check torques before replacing the axle imho, noise with lateral weight transfer sounds like suspension based, not drivetrain. Failing axle should be noticable in a straight line, might be wheel bearing though that would be very odd on such a new car.
