Metal popping noises after control arm replacement

Today I found out what the problem is. I put the wheel down and put a sticker on the muffler, then I put the wheel back and walked to my driveway. As I stepped out, there was a bang. I put the wheel down and found that the sticker was damaged by the stabilizer bar.
The first photo is a new sticker and the second photo is the damaged one.
Don't know why it does what's wrong?

Is the sound kinda like a clicking noise? That's the problem I'm having. I wouldn't describe it as a popping sound. Also got my control arms replaced recently. I can only hear the clicking when I have my windows down and I'm accelerating or decelerating.
The sound I hear from me is a metal bang. You will have another problem if you only hear that sound when the windows are down. I hear the sound with the windows closed, it's a pretty loud sound, like when something breaks. The stabilizer bar blows and the shock absorber damper.
