KYB AGX/GC Combo Help?

Hola Ludchachos,

It's early, and I'm not sure how to explain this properly but long story short; when my homies and I installed my coilovers we did not put the metal washer above the rubber piece that sits above the top hat and the nut to secure it all down. After awhile it fell through itself.

After reinstalling everything, she sits like this now:



but it should rest like this:


(I still need a washer on that one as well)

So yeah any idea why it's doing that? I'm thinking it's because I need to push the spring farther down when I tighten it down maybe?

Thank you in advance.

Broken links dude, you can't link images to a private dropbox. You can see the images but we can't.

Just guessing here, but something has probably been damaged when the dampers fell out. Here is the correct assembly order:



The top nut should be torqued down to 25Nm, there is meant to be a metal sleeve up the middle of the two rubbers which is what the washers and nut torque against.
