    Shaking after coilover install

    As the title says, it's pretty straightforward. Installed some coilovers in the front end of my 06 today, and they ride smooth in a straight line, but while turning there's a rumble and some shaking. Could this be due to the little (maybe 12mm?) hex bolt that's above the 2 giant bolts that hold the strut to the hub? I didn't adjust it at all, got fed up after fighting a sheared off end link and dropped the car back down. Everything else is tight as it should be.

    Just now seeing this thread. You didn't re-use the factory strut-to-knuckle nuts and bolts, did you? They are ONLY to be used ONCE. Before I replaced my front struts/bushings, I got the hardware specs from another forum and went to a Fastenal closest to my job. If you re-used the factory hardware, they could still be loose.
