Exclamation Squeaking After New FUCA's Installed

I have never had any bad squeaks until I have installed my SPC front upper control arms. Not even 1,000 miles on them yet, and the car has squeaked. Even before the front upper control arms, I had coil overs and the car drove just fine with no squeaks. Now I have new lower ball joints, tie rod arms, and the SPC control arms and ever since I installed the control arms Ive gotten massive squeaking noise. I'm assuming its bushings, but I mean, the car was not squeaking until the control arms were installed? Anyway, my question is, what would be a good way to test if that is truly causing the squeaking. It squeaks when I drive, bounce, or hit imperfections in the road etc, even when I sit in the car, I weigh like 140 lbs and just when I sit in the car and put the key in you here the squeak.

Do the upper control arms need greasing by any chance? Any special bushings that need to be done? Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

I probably forgot to add that it could be the stabilizer bar? That is the only thing stock on the cars front suspension.

One option is to have a buddy push down on the front end while you or someone else is under the vehicle.. Of course by all means do this in a safe manner but you need to mimic the car under load to find where the noise is coming from or at least narrow down the area..
