Hello I just recently swamped out the front coils, and shocks on my 2005 Nissan Frontier, see parts below

I put in new strut mounts and springs. The ride is definitely better, the front end rides higher and is stiffer with more control.

My concern is that when I drive over any bump, it is significantly louder than my original shocks and struts.

This seems to be louder at lower speeds. "Thump, Thump, Thump".

Thoughts on the cause of this?

1) Stiffer after market shocks?
2) The strut mount kit contained new rubber bushings, so this should have helped with the noise
