Cup Kit...wrong compressor?
I started the arduous task of my strut installation today and I have an issue I've never run into before. I have the spring compressed on the highest/lowest coils available without interfering with the top assembly or lower perch, but I can't seem to be able to compress the spring enough to bolt everything up. Also, if I line the spring up with the bottom of the perch (similar to the OE setup where the last coil ends at the stop on the perch) then the strut goes through the spring diagonally. If I line it all up so the strut goes up the middle, then the last coil stops short of the stop on the perch. I searched and searched but all the threads regarding this problem die off with no resolution. Anyone have any advice?
