I replaced my right strut and spring now my car periodically makes a rubbing/creaking noise. Also has a strong pull to the right.

Good morning.

Did you replace the strut mount at the top? If you did not, that can make the noise.

Check your control arm bushings as well.

Did you have it aligned when you completed the repair?
