1. Get a portable impact wrench to free (2) 19mm bolts. It saved me hours of effort.

2. Lift both sides of the wheels!!! otherwise struts will not fit! took me 3 hours to learn this. :)

3. When doing strut install, be sure to take stock parts from OEM strut and install into new strut.

I know with theTEIN Basic shocks the self locking nut was impossible to spin on the strut rod. The rod would spin inside of the shock.

My trick was to pre-"thread" the nut and the grab the rod so it didnt spin. Once it gets semi tight hold on to the top hat and you should be able to tighten down the bolt.
