a friend of mine has KWs on his BMW 5, they creak and make a lot of noise. Has anyone else had this issue with KWs on their LX?

are you sure the creaking noise comes from the KWs and not from the BMW? :) :)

no strange noises here.. (except of tires rubbing when doing extreme knight rider stunts)

could be the new springs on the rubber spring pockets.
Get a silicone based lube and skeet the rubbers a good one.
Factory springs have a a fair amount of assembly oil on them...

Yep I gotta go with what Hammer says. My KWv1's made this noise for the first week or so and then it vanished. I'm certain that a little bit of lub would have fixed them up.
