most likely its because the aftermarket springs dont come with the bump stop like that stockers do, so everytime you hit the bump and the spring comes off that mount that little bit, it clicks

Did you make sure to re-install that little paper gasket?

Did you make sure to torque down the 17mm nut good ?

Did you get the spring install the proper direction ( top to bottom and seated)?

All of these can cause the noise.

Is the cv joint under stress?

Just a few suggestions to help.

If you're still under warranty take it to the dealer. Mine is not like that.

well, if you modify the suspension i dont think they will want to warranty it, seeing as it is not factory parts. but if you have a cool service writer he might be able to pull some tricks from his sleeve.
