Noise coming from Endlinks

The conical aluminum spacers belong on the sway bar end of the endlink. From SPL site:

Interesting. 2018 SPL install seems to contradict itself in steps 3 and 4. Looking at your image, seems that the angle at the control arm end is not Perpendicular, and is in fact putting an unwanted twist to rod-end. Would make sense to put spacer there to alleviate that. According to image.

Hard to say without seeing the end of that sway bar. There may be some preload causing the endlink to rotate off center.

If you are adding grease to your sway bar make sure if is synthetic grease and not regular grease. I too had a noise coming from my front sway bar and since grease would not work I applied the teflon threaded tape and it can work and take the unwanted noise away if done right.

Use a synthetic grease like this.
