Question, the top nut on the front coilovers seems be a special nut that requires special driver. It's hex shape on the outside with a allen type hole in the middle. Anyone know what I need to do to tighten this? It clunks when I hit a decent size bump.
You put a socket on the outside and an Allan in the middle, then hold the Allan while tightening the socket
