Steering creaking when stationary after spring change (Top mount torque?)

Popped in some new Eibach lowering springs over the weekend, loving the look!

Only one issue - I've noticed a creak coming from the top of the arch when steering whilst stationary and extremely low speeds:- I'm guessing this is down to the top mount torque, having found some related threads for the 8G. (Or I've buggered the top mount!)

I've checked the drop link and everything is "wanged up tight" - No torque wrench though

Any idea of the required torque for the top mount nut? hoping I can get someone to torque it to spec for me.

Other than that, if you've any other suggestions I'm all ears.

Haven't done it yet, simply as it's not the greatest issue and I'd need to find an 18mm swan neck spanner

Full review coming up soon!
