Question Need Help!!!

Okay so Im putting my spacers from Jackson Rally in and we got the strut out but now I dont know how to get these bolts out.


When you pull the rubber piece down, the bolts are exposed but the springs will get in the way when you take the bolts out. Any help is greatly appreciated!

WTF are you doing? Why do you need to take the tophat studs out?

if you are talking about fitting longer studs into the tophat in order to fit a spacer between the tophat and the strut tower then you will need to remover the tophat from the strut / spring assembly, drive/drill the old studs out, and then reassemble everything

haha I got a 1in lift kit/spacer from a guy named Jackson Rally on dirtyimpreza.com. It fits on top of the tophat and you need to take the old ones out because there to short.

Ahhh...OK. Well...I think you got your answer. And this should be in the suspension forum.
