Re: Shock top nut, can't do it up
Are you using the same nut that came off or a new one from ...say B&Q?
I know your talking about the front shock here due to the flat bit you mention, the thread on the shocks is finer than any other bolt on the car, so make sure you have the right one, it should wind down till the plastic hits the thread by hand, which allows you then to get a 7mm spanner on the top and tighten the nut, but I always build the shocks up on the bench as it makes life a lot simpler, especially with my turbo charged spring compressors.
