Exclamation [Suspension] Does this even look right? Koni Str.t + Eibach Sportlines

Koni Str.t + Eibach Sportlines combo

Maybe it's just me but this doesn't look like it fits/lines up correctly... Am I missing something? or does the rubber insulator (pictured with yellow arrow) provide the stopper needed?

I know I should have gone with different struts but I got a good deal for these and have had them sitting for a while.


*In the pictures below you will see the entire sportline set with individual part numbers, and the FRONT L & R Koni struts, as well as the fitment I'm curious about.*


Help appreciated ! Thanks.

The rubber spring mount needs to be refitted on the new strut. Same thing with the bump stop. Looks like you need a new bump stop anyway.

The spring will not line up with the raised tab on the new strut. I believe it was about 1 inch off on mine. The bottom of the spring is oblong and will fit perfectly. Just move the spring around and you'll see the correct orientation.
