Anyone know what this is?

I had KW V3's installed 2 days ago. For the first few hour, the car was awesome, no squeaks. Few hours later, I did run into some shitty roads on my way home from Brooklyn and started to hear my V3's sqeak...they were fuckin' rebuilt from KW for the past 3 months to 2012 specs..so wtf? Anyways, I look under the car a few min ago and see this..could be the cause to the squeaks? Going to have the shop check it out obv. The squeak IS coming from the front driver wheel and this is where the pic was taken.

Looks to me like the headlight leveling arm thingamajigger. The shop must have forgotten to clip it back in. I doubt it would cause squeaks though...

It moves around pretty easily which is why I thought it would be the cause. This is fucking retarded, I paid $350 to have these rebuilt...I'm not willing to have the shop uninstall the front dampers, send them out to KW, and have to pay money again to have them reinstalled.

You guys think, if on a written contract, KW will send me out new front dampers, and after I get those, I'll send back the squeaky ones? Otherwise, I'll be charge backing my CC and may sue. Unbelievable.

thats the arm for your headlight leveling sensor. Just reach in an clip it back on. Def not the source of any squeaking.

Another case of KW's suspension squeaking... Why do people insist on buying KW is beyond me.
