Question Just a quickie before I install the DMS 50's this weekend.

I noticed that the mounting tabs where the wheel spindles bolt onto the struts are different from one pair to the next.

One pair has a slight indentation, the other does not have the indentation.

Does this denote front and rear struts?

Also, how tight should the black nut be that holds the top of the camber plate on?

Assuming the DMS 50s are packaged the same way as the DMS Golds, each of mine came in a separate box labeled "front" and "rear".

Q: are one pair of the struts longer?

If so, that should be the rear. If not, hrrmmm that's odd.

Uhm... <FONT size="5">D'OH!!!</FONT s>

You mean like in this picture? The strut with the shorter body goes in front, and the longer one goes in back?
