Your shop is pretty dumb... You just need the hardware (top hats and such) from 06-07 and it bolts right in. The rears should also be drop in with nothing extra needed.

As long as it had the upper half of the struts included (top hat, strut bearing, etc) then yeah it's all correct. I think massive has a note on their site when ordering the kit for 08-11 owners. I think Willy was responsible for that.

I had the same issue when I got my frpp springs. The rears should go in with zero problems - so the shop saying they don't fit would make me worry a bit about them.

For the fronts, I spoke with Karl and he emailed me this link, which I then bought (2 of them) and the fronts were then installed.

You'd have to order it extra. I deleted the posts on this thread, but last year when I got these I had some issues with a company saying everything thing came in the kit and it really didn't. Take a picture of what you have and we can go from there

Your set to use any 06-11 spring. If you use a 06-07 spring use the top hats (large metal circles dead center) if you use 08-11 springs just swap the strut and spring in
