Default installed new springs and shocks and my fronts are making an awful noise

i installed a new set of eiboch springs and kyb shocks in the front and they are making an awful noise at the slightest bump. if someone bounces the car while im looking in the wheel well i can see a slight pop after the car depresses ( on the way back up). its driving me insane and everythings tight. anyone ever heard of this problem?

This happened to me as well before I could get the new setup on the front. Turned out to be a bad strut mount. Replaced with new and good to go. Also make surethe nut on top of the shock is tightened down all the way. I hear that can make the same noise.
