KW V1 noise

I installed KW V1's yesterday and now everytime i turn the wheel either way it sounds like the springs are snapping into place. The make a snapping noise and its very evident. The height isn't the issue because i had it at 20 threads to the bottom at first then set it to 33. They make the same noise.

What should I do?

I'm an idiot. We overtightened the strut rod nut (nut on strut mounton top of bearing) and it wasn't allowing the spring to turn with the wheel. I caught it the next day. Any more time and I could have messed up the struts.
