Noise from passenger side

I have a question about a noise my car has made since switching from a 12” 200lb front spring to a 10” 300lb spring. I removed my 200lb springs and installed the new ones over my previously used Strange adjustable struts/Strange coil overs. When removing them I noticed the upper spring perch of the coil over looked to be making contact with the bottom plate of the Maximum Motorsports C/C plate. I had only one large spacer to begin with and put a small one with it now to gain the necessary clearance needed. After installation I went for a test drive and found a horrible knocking noise coming from the passenger side. In trying to chase down said noise, I found the passenger side strut to be junk. Ordered some new Koni yellows and installed those, and still have the same noise on the passenger side. Have proper torque on struts, ball joints, etc.... Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps the spherical bearing in the C/C plate has developed some play? I know from experience with cheaper C/C plates on another car of mine that they will start to clunk / pop when they go bad. I don't think that's a common issue with the MM plates, but it could happen.
