Lightbulb Squeaking problem gone!

So guys i have been having this stupid squeaking problem in my car for the longest time. memebers on nasioc were telling me that i can be my endlinks from my sway bars.

So my frist test i went ahead retorque the bolts/nuts --fail still squeaks

2nd someone recommended me that my front endlinks were not the bushing type so its a metal on metal rub, so i decided to buy the bushing type the results -- fail! squeaks like a B still

3rd i removed the endlinks and the car still squeaks without them! i pretty much wasted 100 bucks at this point.

now i know its the coilover so we removed the coilovers and checked it out..we found out what was squeaking and making a creek noise when im turning the wheel the top of the coilover was rubbing on my top hat due to the fact the coilover was not pushed all the way down when screwing the strut bolt on....so it was moving up and down when i would go over bumps..on top of that it freakin grinded my strut stud! luckly the part it was grinding on we didnt need to screw it down that deep =). So we properly installed the coilovers no more squeaks clunking. hope this helps you guys out there =)..if you hear clunking, squeaking, and creeking noises from your car check your coilovers ASAP before it does any more damage! ill post pics of it later btw i did not do the intial install damn shop screwed it up *shakes fist*
