Is it normal for squeeking/creaks on the front end when you have tighter dampening settings? I have my fronts set at 12 from hard. Hearing creaks when I hit bumpy spots. Not terrible, but they are there. I here them less when I have a passenger. Please help. I just need to know how normal this is... did your cars squeek/creak more over bumpy spots with coilovers on stiffer dampening settings??? Please help me!!!

That squeak/creek you are referring to might be your front strut mount bearings gone kaput - they are known to do that

Brand new BC coilovers??? I'm seriously doubting it would be thr strut bearing??
I have bc coils too. I hear a slight creak when I'm going slow about 5-15mph over a rough road but it goes away at higher speeds or freeway. Mines are almost full stuff too. Hope this helps. Don't think it's any issues. Could also be your end links if you didn't upgrade them. They tend to go bad and make a ton of noise like a bad axle
