Default studio camber roll center adapters (RCA)

anybody running them here?

ive had mine on for a few weeks now, and when i turn the steering wheel slightly it makes a creaking noise. but with the rca's off the noise goes away. the noise occurs to both sides but do not make noise simultaneously. left turns tend to trigger the the drivers side creak and right turns triggers the passenger side. weird thing is if i turn the wheel back and forth rapidly, no noise occurs.

ive gotten new shorter bolts, washers and they are torqued to about 93 ft/lbs...noise is still there.
also i wonder if lock washers would be better suited?

i have brand new moog tie rod ends and my moog lower ball joints are about 3-4 months old. im starting to think my steering rack is bad

any inputs would be helpful. thank you

edit* removed both rcas today and the noise is still there. the noise is a little bit quieter with the help of powersteering(with the car on) and the noise is just as loud with the car off. so its not related to the rca, seems like the rca just made the issue worse.

the squeak is almost as similar as this ls430 in the video, the owner said it was the camber bolt but mine are pretty tight

I'd check your tie rods/ends and the steering bushings.
