Unknown rear suspension noise

I just installed Eibach ProKit and Koni Yellos on my ride. I previous had Bilstein PSS which made no noise. I've swaped the rear shocks and RSM's so it rules out the shock and RSM as the problem. Both upper spring pads were not used, only the bottom. The noise sounds like a panel hitting against something and is coming from the rear passenger side. The noise is driving me crazy.

For Sale:
ECIS Intake
