You either have to put the vehicle back to its original condition or at the very least double check the work done. Something is not correct on the car. A car's suspension is essential for safe operation on the road and perhaps your modification is not a safe one. Not really know what you did to have "an angle" as you indicate. But proper suspensions with the correct components do not rattle. Check your work or take it back to whom ever did the work for repairs. Good luck.

you can make the car look great and still work properly. Take the kit back off and install it to the proper location. You should just put it right back into the original mounting location. I have never heard of someone moving it to "make up for the angle". It sounds like your angle adjustment is most likely the culprit. When you lower your car you are going to have a bit of negative camber. It won't kill you, it'll just put you through tires a bit faster but it doesn't sound like you slammed the car so it shouldn't be a worry. Also, once you lower your car and tighten the ride you are going to start hearing some new noises. Also while you're under there check out the control arms.
