Bravo tjet squeak

Hi guys, I have been reading these forums for weeks however this is my first post.

I bought a bravo 1.4 T Jet about a month ago my first thoughts were WOW. I have had fast cars before, but this is unreal! Such a fun drive

Anyway I have changed a drop link and had the front coil springs replaced. The car runs really well however, there is now a distinctive squeaking noise coming from what seems the front spring on the drivers side. This only happens when I have driven the car for about 30 mins. I took it back to ATS as they did the spring and they said it was fine, the noise isn't bad and that they did the springs right.

But... I looked today with my mate and he said that the spring cup isn't placed right. There is a picture below. Click image for larger version

Do you think it's worth taking back to ATS again? I believe they should replace this if they have done it when they have changed the spring? I really have no clue on cars so any help from the forum members would be very much appreciated.

Re: Bravo tjet squeak

Just to say. I had a bravo 2.0 HGT and a 1.8 HLX in the past. They were definitely my favourite cars until I bought this. Just wanna get the squeak out lol
