Thanks. I looked these up and it says where the front struts assemble to, requires some modification?

Down the page, it indicates some grinding to get them to fit

Yes there is a possibilty the you will have to take sandpaper to the inside of the knuckle and smooth it out or more sometimes it does not fit just right into the knuckle. But well worth it i may snatch these up myself

But if so as stated in the link, if using sandpaper is too difficult for you then maybe coilovers aren't for you as they take more knowledge then having to use some sandpaper.



Thanks, Rep Given for you.
What are you talking about? Im a mechanic, and by the way the link showed armanduh using a grinder not sandpaper..

you don't need to grind anything. its just it's just a tight fit. all you need to do is pry the knuckle open enough to slip it in there. you can do that using a screw driver. seen it done, was there when it happened the first time.

They weren't that much... buuuuut you can't get this set anymore, so a tad more rare than when people first got on board!

...the top mounting piece slips onto your stock top strut mount as your top hat. Armanda has a thread on here about them, she is who I found out about them from.
If you get them get new strut mounts! they're hella-cheap and the car could make noises if you reuse old ones... and here's another pic-heavy write up on the install:
