oops..was I supposed to use the OEM part too?

question about suspension...

when my buddy and I installed the H&R/bilsteins ....was I supposed to reuse the plastic covers on the back shocks? the fronts came with some...but the rears didn't...so we didn't bother..but I saw this set for sale(used) on another site...and it was packed in the box with the black OEM plastic covers...

anybody confirm that I'm a F*@ktard?

thnx

also........how important is it to use a torque wrench when assembling the suspension?... we used the bry-wrench...more specifically...my buddy bryan's arm...

You need those, they keep crap from getting onto your shocks and mucking them up, blowing the upper seals.

Not on the Bilsteins, they have internal bump stops.

Konis you need external bump stops. It's actually a seperate unit from the dust shield IIRC
