Position spring strut mount as follows

(position spring strut mount correctly relative to shock absorber eye).

The left and right spring strut mounts are identical. There are therefore two markings on the mounts, R (Right) and L (Left).

Before positioning, check whether you are positioning a left or right shock absorber.

The right mount is correctly positioned if the marking R (Right) is in line with the center of the stabilizer mount ball joint bolt.

The left mount is correctly positioned if the marking L (Left) is in line with the center of the stabilizer mount ball joint bolt.

To position the mount, turn it to the right. Turn the mounting bolt using a suitable lever.

Caution: Only turn it to the right (clockwise) and only turn the spring strut mount. Do not under any circumstances turn the spring support.

After the spring strut mount has been positioned correctly and the coii spring is in contact with the stops, tighten the fastening nut. To tighten the fastening nut, hold a 7 mm open-end wrench against the piston rod. Tightening torque: 58 Nm, (43 ftlb.). Caution: Do not under any circumstances use a power impact wrench to tighten the fastening nut.
