Couldn't find an answer about the OEM washer parts# required for Tein ss installation from other forum, hopefully someone can help me here.

Thanks in Advance.

Got my Tein ss (used one <10000miles) installed by a mechanic two weeks ago, it drives smooth and good corning. BUT there is pretty loud squeaking noise(louder in the colder day)from both front shocks when I push down on the car OR go over a parking lot speed bump and it lasts quite a while before it went away.
And also there is clunking noise from both front and rear when is driving on uneven road (a lot of small bumps), but it drives smooth and no clunking on the smooth road & no clunking even go over a minor to medium bump/potholes.
Mechanic already checked all bolts/nuts, sways bars and ball joints and nothing wrong.

When i was cleaning up the oem shocks in the past weekend, I've noticed that I still have the front oem washers-part#9 & 13 attached to the oem front shocks and the rear oem washers-parts#13 on the rear oem shocks.

Questions:
Q1. Bad tein shocks?
Q2. do you think all noise cause by the missing oem washers on Tein SS installation?
Q3. do you guys install those oem washers on your tein coilovers?
Q4. Can you please help identify the those oem washers required on the Tein ss installation.
Front washers = part# 9 & 13???
rear washers = part# 3 & 13???

Posts like this are the reason why I do everything myself. The only way to know if those washers are there is to pull your suspension apart and check. I'm not able to see anything with the links you provided with regards to the washers. Could you describe where these washers go?

Those washers keep the bushings in place. That's about it. Now if your mechanic reused the OEM top mounts its a very good possibility that he didn't put those washers back in. It may be the source of the problem you describe.

I guess it seems you answered your own question by quoting your OP. Go back to that mechanic and have him re-install those washers. Just might fix your problem. After you do that, drive it around and report back.
