Help! Lowering springs make a clunking noise!

Just installed a set of lowering springs, they are a little bouncy but my main concern is the fact that it pulls to the right a little and the Passengers side sping makes a loud clunk (you can feel it in the spring) when you turn. Also when I drive it wants to turn more to the right and the tires squeel when I make a left turn. It feels really weird and unsafe, I don't want the thing tire to blow out from underneith me.. anyone have any ideas???

Yeah, I figured it out; the spring was installed upside down... now all I gotta do is an alignment cause the tires are pointed in opposite directions.. good thing I work at a gas station, he he... THanks for your input man!

all you did was flip them?? I'm having this same problem and the springs look the same on both sides.
