    coilover turning in top mounts

    hi guys, I've got a problem with my new coilovers, whenever i turn the steering wheel the coilovers turn in the same direction, it makes a strange bumping noise when i turn round corners, i've got the strut then the rubber bearing then a nyloc nut that came with the kit, is it fitted right??

    any ideas??

    cheers guys

    I know when mine where fitted they had to take parts of the top of the existing strut for it to fit correct!

    make sure you have the metal bearing on them from your original struts, you should have removed it from the plastic part and put it under the rubber top mounts that sits under the arches
