Some weird noises

Hey guys, I installed my h&r race springs about two months ago and love them. Now before anyone says its because I'm running race springs on stock struts, hold off and read. They were completely normal the first couple weeks and 3 nights ago I noticed when I'm turning left or right whether it be on a slight incline or decline, there is a horrendous popping and clicking noise I can hear and feel through the steering wheel. I have had lowered cars before and understand that the springs compress and make weird noises when the car is that low, does anyone else have this issue? What should I check? Maybe the strut mount nuts in the engine compartment are loosening?

It's only the front suspension they rear is perfectly fine.

Any input appreciated!

did you check your bump stops when you removed the shocks? because chances are, they were pretty worn and after lowering them you went thru them faster. Remember that lowering with springs is essentially just shorter springs with compromises the shock more along with other suspension parts
