Good day!

I'd go back in there and check all the mounting hardware for the front struts! I was actually missing one of the strut to spindle nuts... I'm not sure how the large bolt didn't work it's way out and cause real issues... Three nuts at the top strut tower in the engine bay and the two bolts/nuts mounting the strut to the spindle...

I've also heard the brace pan hardware can cause the same issue... Think there are six bolts/nuts holding it on...

Let us know what you find please! Good luck!

Cheers!
