New steering stabilizer issue

I just got finished putting on a 6" 4 link skyjacker on my 2012 f250. Did it my self and everything seems to be working fine. Until today I put my fox dual steering stabilizer on and now it squeaks when turning left and right. Don't know if the shocks are stiff and have to work in a little, meanin they are putting pressure on a bushing in the steering right now. Want to make sure it's not putting pressure on steering pump and that's what's squeaking. Hard to tell where it's coming from. Anybody have any experience with this situation after adding stabilizer? Also kept factory upper stabilizer.

The shocks are Fox 2.0, they have a adjustment on them. Do they just need pressure let out?

I have done that, but hard to tell where its coming from. sounds like driver side but not sure of location wise. Thanks for your suggestion.. I was thinking maybe the shocks were too tight or something.
