My front end of my bike makes this clicking sound when I pull up or push down on the bars. I recently got a new stem and headset and it still made the sound after I got those. If I loosen the compression bolt and pinch bolts and then re-tighten them it stops for a little. My headset and cap are both greased... if you have any advice please let me know.

I seek progression, not perfection.

naw i was being sarcastic and a smart ass but in reality grease it up and tighten down that compression bolt so it doesnt shake around and it should not click.

The headset and bolt are both greased a lot... and I tighten all the bolts to the point where they wont tighten any more.

sometimes new stems will "creak" when you tighten them down

Do you have grease on all bolt threads? How about on all bearings? A lot of the time it is a little flex on a bolt or where the bolt threads in and some grease ends the creak. Make sure all your stem bolts have a little grease on the threading, your compression bolt too, and all the bearings and bearing surfaces.
