Megan coils help.

Postby Zenki85 » Fri Jan 25, 2013 7:03 pm

Soooo I just picked up my coilovers. And I put the rear in but my problem now is that I can't seem to tighten up the top bolt without the shock moving with it. Tried holdin the shock. And tried holding the shock and using a impact wrench

What top "bolt"? There should be two nuts up top in rear from inside the trunk and one bolt holding the bottom of the strut.

I would jack up the car with the rear drooping a bit. Then I would undo the bottom bolts of each strut. Then try tightening the top nut of each strut. I think you just gotta finangle with it and it probably is just in a pickle haha.

Also- on my car there are 2 nuts at the top of the strut. One is to hold in place while you tighten the nut on top of it. Mabe this is your issue.

Good luck
