View Full Version : screwed up installing my shocks

I put the front stut assembly back in the e30 forgetting to tighten the nut down first. I was wondering if there is a way to tighten it while it is in the car. Due to the fact it will spin in the housing
i would hate to tear it apart again:(

Which nut, the collar nut on the strut assembly or the top nut?

the top nut that has the small round cover on it.That attaches to the strut rod.
