Suspension Install Questions

So I've got my strut housings repainted and ready to go, and my new Bilstein Sports and H&R sports ready to go, but I've got a couple questions before I can get it together.

-Will the stock collar fit? I'd just try it out, but I destroyed mine in disassembly

-I read something about moving a clip on the dust boot? Anyone know about this?

-Anything else I should know?

Looking forward to finally getting the front end done!!

Well, I certainly feel like an idiot...

I opened up the strut insert box again, and lo and behold, there was a Bilstein collar right there on the shock. And the plastic clip - just need to remove the dust boot, slide it off, then put it on the outside of the top of the strut housing tube!

Damn easy! Just waiting on new spring pads before they go on the car!
