Since you paid good money for an install, take it back and have the shop check it out for you, something isn't right. They owe you that much. You would need to know what is causing your issue and get the car into the air and have the proper tools. Might be an alignment issue.

I did, but he assured me that he touched nothing, he only changed the arms. I read where they said it could be the height sensor. Thanks for your answer.

Take your car to a frame shop to the front end re-alinged.

They installed the sensor in the control arm upside down.. My mechanic just did the same thing today.. Thank God I noticed it..
