Default LCA clunk

Hey guys

Installed some upr adjustable lcas two weekends ago and have been getting a clunk when I go over bumps (speed bumps, potholes, etc.). I researched this and the only things I could find was to seat my springs differently and load the suspension when I torque down the bolts. Any other suggestions?

Did you replace the stock LCA's with these, or were they aftermarket LCA's before these?

I replaced the stock ones.

The spring pig tail is supposed to be pointed towards the drivers side correct?
