I am surprised the inverted hex in the center threaded rod of the strut did not strip before you hit torque spec. If anyone ever has Bilsteins and does this, it will surely strip. I wasted all this money getting special sockets and what not to only have it still strip. Ask me how I know Just save yourself some time and impact it on. Meyle end links also uses this retarded design.
