Question Knocking noise from front end

Hey guys,

7th gen civic with Neuspeed sports, I had the struts replaced under warranty from Honda but yet there is still a nocking noise coming from the front of my car, and it has only become noticeable since the car was lowered back in septemeber.
Any idea's on what it can be? I wonder if Honda really did change the struts now, it was under warranty, but they gave me a hard time about it because the car was lowered.
Anyone else have this problem after the car has been lowered?
It only occurs at low speeds while turning.

Thanks,

Shaun

Shop next store to my office. But the noise was there before, just more noticeable now. Honda said struts but they said they "replaced" them under warranty...but im calling bull sh|t.
You guys have any clues?

if you want to know if the struts have been done, there is a number on a white sticker on the side of the strut. The original ones didnt have this white sticker. There are two different numbers because when they first noticed a problem, ,they had a new upgraded strutt, then when that didnt work, they offered a different one, that one didnt leak, I cant remember the number of the good one, but chances are the dealer did replace it if they said they did. They get paid to do this and warranty covers an allignment. If it wasnt done, the tech wouldnt get paid.
