clunking

had my buddy install Eibach lowering springs on my 2012 msport shocks and i have a clunking on what seems to be the front left corner. I took the wheel off and nothing looks loose. I watched him do it and he's does this daily as his job at a shop. I'm thinking maybe the bolts were tightened in the wrong order? Any help? Thanks

thanks for all the helpful info. Googling around a bit helped me to find that tightening the top strut bolt(tophat bolt) would resolve the issue. It made most of it go away but it's still vaguely there, when i get it aligned im gonna have them check it out.

Signature shows everything i've done since i've had it over the passed 8 or so months. I think it's finally where i want her, looking OEM+ and still 100% functional. Eventually i may get a DISA manifold and a tune but that'd be in at least 3 months.

Got an alignment today, -1 in front both sides(with camber pin knocked out and struts slid towards center of the car) and -1.5 rear with 1/16th toe in on the rear. Drives amazing, it inspires so much more confidence than the stock springs/height and still is very comfortable, more so than i thought it would be.

As an added benefit, the alignment fixed my clunking issue.
