The car didn’t make the noise after the install, I lost control of the car on the highway shortly after , the car was zig zagging going about 60 mph regained control thankfully. Then the noise started. I had it checked at the dealership and they said it was fine that the noise was due to non Honda parts, they’re Monroe from rock auto . The dealership reinstalled the strut assemblies and said it was ok but the grinding and popping noise is getting worse

@hamack What about before the install? If it's still making noise, the dealership missed something. Stand next to the drivers' side front quarter panel and push down on the hood right above the wheel. You're trying to make the car "bounce" a little and see if you hear the noise then.

@hamack 8th generation Civics also often have bad wheel bearings. Jack the car up so that wheel can spin freely and spin it with your hand. If you hear a rubbing/roaring noise or if the wheel itself has a lot of end play your wheel bearing is bad. Did the noise seem to increase when you turn to the left?

Are you sure you tightened the nuts that connect the strut assembly to the strut tower? Was it making any noise before you replaced them?
