u cant really do alignment on a lowered car... If they do it will never be 100% accurate??? not sure if thats going to help the knocking noise... you might have cut ur bushings to much ????

when you do the eibacj install it tells you to shave a bit off your factory bushings so Im not sure what springs you installed...

I had the same problem when I installed my springs. It is the metal rod on the front shocks with a rubber greeese boot on each end. You have to make sure that is all the way tight. Use an allan wrench on the back part of it to hold it from spinning. Once this is tight you wont have any problems. It is only in the fronts so don't even bother looking at the back ones.
