Default FIGS end links----making alot of squeaks after install

Got the Figs endlinks installed in the front and now my car squeaks everytime I turn the wheel left and right.

I am pretty annoyed and pissed...lol


I am in Richmond BC, looking for local people to meet with and get some help.

Thanks guys


Or for anyone else that wants to share there thoughts...I'm all ears!

You have to center it in a way to allow rotation. Look at it after load.

Did you get the endlinks that are solid? Or is there a rubber boot on it?
