Guys
I’ve been hearing squeaking or rubber crunchy from high above the engine bay. I have tighten and torque to specs , 75lbs/ft , the lower control arms but the noise is still there. As I researched this sounds in the forum, I came across Strut mounts. Do they make that sounds? Or I should check elsewhere?

The top strut mounts use rubber to separate the damper rod to the 3 chassis studs. If they have failed then it can make that noise. Not saying it is this but it's possible.
I managed to ruin one when I tried to undo the top nut. The damper rod centre section just spun inside the outer part of the mount.
