New front struts on 99 OB, did I do something wrong?

I’m pulling to the left a little and I’m pretty sure both sides are making a knock noise when I go over potholes/bumps etc. I’ve driven on them for about 250+ miles now but I don’t know much about suspension yet, I heard they could need to be broken in but I have no idea what makes them “knock” I did also make sure to mark the top bolt at 12 o’clock position and tighten it back in the right place.

Try rocking the car back and forth (left to right). If you can hear the knocking, check the swaybar links and bushings.
