Rear end clicking noise after spring install

Tried a search and didn't find anything, wondering if anyone has some more ideas.

Started after I installed my RCE yellow springs, it sounds like a clicking sound from the strut tophats or endlinks but both are as tight as I can get them. Over bumps it's usually quiet, I hear it more when the suspension is loaded. IE, backing out of the driveway at an angle or loading one side of the car.

I didn't use an impact on the top bolt, springs are properly centered on the strut/tophat as far as I can tell.

Pretty sure this isn't the rear deck clicking noise since it started right after the springs and is audible on both sides.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hard to tell from here, but please feel free to give us a call. It should be quiet.

Did you ever figure out what caused this noise? I have similar "click"/"tink"/"tight metal noise" from the rear. I've noticed this after I installed my Whiteline subframe inserts.
