no spring plate on xi sport blistein.

hey guys, i just purchased some blistein sports for my Xi. it came in this evening. what's wierd about it is that the front doesn't come with spring plates. i know is not the rear because they are a lot thinner when compared. the box came with no directions or any sort. i feel like they forgot to send it. the company i order if from is closed on weekends. if any body have installed blistein sports on their Xi please give me a heads up. thanks

You have to transfer the spring perch over to the new strut.They are somewhat pressed on. A standard hammer and a few light taps will remove them.
