Default Saturn SL2 Strut Query

I did an overhaul on my suspension, went with the Moog Variable Coils, KYB GR2 Struts with KYB Mounts, KYB Bellow & Bumpstops. I also purchased new Coil Spring Seats for the front, my question is since I changed the coils am I still supposed to use the spring seats?

There's a ton of noise coming out of the front end, some of the noise sounds like it's from the spring seat hitting the studs even though I made sure to fit the spring seat correctly (had this problem before on some old quick struts). Also the front KYB mounts are squeaking like crazy.

I'm pretty dissatisfied with the whole job, the old stock ones from 94 were quieter and less harsh, though I have seen an improvement in handling. I've already gotten it aligned as well so there's another variable out of the equation.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

This is what my assembled strut looked like, if it's any help. I'm not getting any noise or squeaking going over bumps, but I do get some creaking when I turn the steering wheel. I'm thinking the KYB Mounts, but I'm not sure.
