Refitting spring onto strut
Just replaced the top mounts for the front struts, failing to notice the angle that the top metal bracket sits at in relation to the shock absorber. I see that there is a small hole on the outside of the metal bracket, should this line up perfectly with the hook at the bottom of the shock?
Is it that important to get it bang on? I guess there would be some strain on the topmount if I had it offset.
Elearn shows a little tool to insert into their special compression tool. Being a DIYer I only have use of universal spring compressors.
