stance section?

not sure if its the right section.

but what does this nut do?
I loosened it quite a bit thinking it would take off my damper..


I changed my CV axle a few weeks ago and now I hear a clunk noise from my suspension when going over a bump/dip slowly.

Re: stance section?

Those are the nuts that hold the top hat to the top of the shock.

Re: stance section?

You take the whole assembly (shock, spring and top-hat), put on spring compressors, and then loosen the top nut slowly with a hex wrench. I'd tighten it back down for now if I were you, so your spring doesn't shoot off the strut. x_x

Re: stance section?

thanks a lot.

So if I loosened it about 6-8 turns, could it possibly make my front drivers tire/suspension "clunk" over bumps?

Re: stance section?

you seriously need to read the helms manual before you work on your car. if it fails you could destroy your shock and anything in that area driving around like that

in general with cars if you dont know what you are doing you can make a VERY expensive mistake. you can also make things very dangerous, for example what you just did with your suspension

in the future this should help you out
