where the struts lower bolts just good ol regular bolts or was one of them smaller with a small hump (camber adjustment type)? And did you index the top spring plate with the lower srut housing, They're offset, though I wouldn't think the latter would cause a camber issue. you'll want to align her anyway as lowering of any amount will affect toe settings & you may need camber bolts or you can spring for the upper camber/caster plates.



How do you make a small fortune racing? Start with a very large one!!!

On the stock strut the spring is offset in the front. the top spring plate Has a hole to index it with another hole in the lower spring perch. I use a long 1/4 drive extension for the task.
