trouble reassembling front strut and springs
I'm replacing my front springs with SRT8 springs and new struts. I have the Monroe top strut mounts, new top and bottom isolators and I'm trying to put the spring/strut together. The issue I'm having is the top strut mount wants to torque and rotate as I tighten the strut bolt to compress the spring. This puts the four top mount bolts out of position to install in the strut tower in the Jeep and once you have the strut nut tightened down you cannot rotate the top mount because of the tension on the assembly.
Is there some trick to doing the strut and spring assembly to keep everything in alignment? Any advise would be helpful.
