Note: I tried tightening it when everything was completely done and my car was sitting normally not jacked up.

I finished installing my rears today and will upload pics tomorrow. Really nice drop with Megan Springs

Edit: Is it Ok for me to have Koni shocks in the rear and Oem in the front?
Unless someone else chimes in, the way I understood how to tighten the nut on the top of the strut assembly was to use a spark plug socket, thread the allen wrench through the opening and then tighten down the nut while holding the allen wrench in place so the assembly would not rotate...IDK, but that's the process I used.

Vortech // Magnaflow // Hotchkis // H&R
