Arrrggg, Suspension Noise! ('99 Infiniti G20)

Hey all,

I recently replaced my Lower Control Arms, Upper Control Arms, Sway Bar Bushings, and Sway bar end links. It solved the infamous squeaking sound that a worn UCA causes while cruising, and it has made the car handle tons better.

However, a new noise has started to come out.

It does not occur when I take off, or cruise. It happens very quietly when I turn left AND right, and is most pronounced when JUST before coming to a stop. Not as soon as I brake, but just when the car is about to stop. It sounds like something is rubbing on something, or something is compressing too much and is making a noise.

I think it might be something to do with me torquing the sway bar end links incorrectly as I do not have a torque wrench.

If anyone has had a similar problem, please let me know. As my sanity depends on it, lol.
