okay i have eibach sportline springs with kyb-agx adjustable struts. first of all, they are working great, and arent giving me any performance problems. but the back driver's side suspension is making a god awful grinding....squeaking sometimes....almost like a vibration noise. anyone have any ideas?

when i installed the struts i noticed that in the back, where the spring meets the top of the strut tower thing, i didnt have those gasket things, i dont know what theyre called, dampers i guess, that prevent metal-on-metal. i didnt have one on either side in the back, but i had them on both in the front. could this be the reason its making such a bad noise?

thanks alot guys

nick- i have 17 inch rims with 205-40-17 tires on them. but the tires arent rubbing i dont think. it makes the noise when hitting bumps and gets even worse in sharp cornering.
