I assume this problem did not exist with the old faucet....sounds like you lost the cushion of air in the standpipes for your hot and cold water lines in the might try turning off the main water valve to the whole house and at least open your faucet in the kitchen on both sides until the water has drained ot well..close the new faucet..then turn back on the water and let the lines fill back up with water....This might work....IF not I have seen on do it yourself home repair shows where you can buy at like plumbing supply stores or maybe even Home Depot water hammer preventers that install on each of your water supply lines under the sink---check them out...let us know what worked or didnot work..hope this helps...good luck
