    I think someone might iron this out for sure but I think it's called the CV Joints that's going out

    Im guessing it didnt make the sound before changing the springs? It could be the spring isnt seated correctly and is turning out of sync with the strut cup/macpherson srut. Its also possible the act of removing the strut cup has damaged it. Its hard to say over the net, I'd try to get somebody to listen to where it is coming from exactly as you turn the wheel.
