Default creaky creak creak.

i installed a tein basic coilover system on my 04 3s two weeks ago, and ive been hearing this noise that kind of sounds like an old creaky door thatd be on a haunted house or something...this noise only occurs at low speeds (15mph or less), from inside the car it sounds like its coming from the front right of the car, but when outside the vehicle the noise comes from the rear right side. the noise only happens when im turning the wheel. my car still drives and handles top-notch, but the noise is a bit unnerving. so far ive been able to figure out the noise isnt cause by tires rubbing against anything, and its not the shocks...

any idea what this could be, and should i worry about it

Could just be because your car is stiffer. My mom's Mutange does the exact same thing because it's convertible. When the car wants to twist but can't, it makes noises. It's just metal on metal contact. I wouldn't be too worried about it. You may want to get a 2nd opinion just in case. I'd feel horrible if you decided to heed my advice and ignore it and then you die in an accident. Most likely though it's nothing.
