so im putting my front struts and springs together ahead of time so all i have to do when i take my car apart is put it back together... question: at the top where the cup with the 3 bolts seems croocked is that normal and will it flaten out when i put it in car? question2:does it go strut, spring, metal cup, strut bearing, cup with 3 bolts, then big bolt?

be smart and get a set of these while your at it and then get an alignment. alignment is not a must but very highly recommended.

Hardest most pain in the ass part is compressing the spring to put it on the strut
