[NC] having issues after installing koni shocks

Post by geneius811 »

I installed my new koni shocks, FCM bump stops, and progress springs today. and I came across an issue. After i dropped the car, the shock shaft came up??? I followed the instructions is was given, but i'm still having an issue. I dont have the factor strut bar, and I was unable to torque the top nut to spec, because the same shaft was spinning as i attempt to torque it. Need help, thanks! here's the pic of the issue

Showed to Rocky, head mechanic around here and first thought here is that you don't have the lower rubber bushing and washer on the shock? A big washer sits on the shoulder of that shock and hole through the middle is 12mm. On that big washer you have one of those rubber donuts and the two items together keep the shock from pushing up through like we see here.
