White smoke is probably from a coolant hose you knocked loose, and the strut bar probably wasn't installed properly. Get under the car again to see what the issue is, better yet, have a mechanic help you.

I didn't get under the car when I installed it and yeah I was thinking something most likely got loose bcuz I could see some hose looks open

Try getting under it now and identifying what it is that's hanging down under the car. I'm guessing you will find some useful clues there.
