Default Noise after brake line install??

Hello Guys and Gals;

I just finished installing front and rear stainless brake lines on my WRX, and took the car out for a spin. I noticed a reproducible noise coming from the undercarriage of the car when I turn right...it sounds like a dull "thunk". It sounds like it is the front driver side, but I can't be sure. Does anyone know what might be causing this? I know that it only started after I installed the lines. I checked for clearance and binding of each line, and they all look fine.

A theory I have is that the clips holding one of the lines to the chassis attachment point is not tight enough and allows the line to move and make the noise...so if it is coming from the rear of the car the noise could travel up along the metal lines and sound like it is coming from the front?

Any suggestions?

OK buy Nates beans


Did you follow the routing/placement of the original lines with the new ones "exactly" making sure that they weren't twisted?
If not, then that may be a place to start. And yes, it's important

Yes, I did make sure the lines were following the original route, and were not twisted...in fact I had to re-bleed one because I took it off to re-position it after I noticed it was twisted. I took another look at them with the car on the ground, and they look fine.

Any other suggestions?
