Suspension noise from camber plates and endlinks

Anyone else with BC racing or Sonic Tuning coilovers have squeaking noise from
the camber plates that they provided? Iíve had mine for about 2 years now, and they squeak occasionally when I go over small bump.
Anyone else have this issue? Should I go back to stock top hats?

I installed the hotchkis endlinks in front when I lowered my car, lately I noticed some clunking noise when Iím backing out of the driveway, I wonder if the boot on the end links are worn.

Anyone else got any recommendation?

Tighten the top hat bolt on the front coils. Mine were squeaking after about 2 weeks of use until I tightened them.

Did you tighten to 35 lb or just use impact I was told 18lb on camber plates and 35 on strut and no Impact for fear ruining seals but every mechanic I know uses impact despite this
