H&R help

Just installed H&R's and love the way it sits and rides. Is it normal to get some cluckyness when driving over bumps? First set so I'm not sure what to expect.
Thanks as always.

My thoughts were maybe some bolts have not been torqued properly. ??

At least from my experience with other cars, if you hear clunking after a suspension install, it's usually the endlinks.

Did you install them yourself? I'm looking for a good shop in tulsa or Dallas to install a set.

I got mine done here professionally in LA.
I learned the hard way with a Porsche in the past
to leave some things to the pros who do it regularly.
You have some recourse that way. We spent
enough to get our cars and didnt want to take a chance for
a few hundred dollars.
