13.You have to put the Suspension Support (metal plate) On the top of the Spring Bumper(yellow thing) and slide the whole thing on the strut .
But only after you put the spring on it(strut) first.

18.Now secure this 3 nuts and don't forget to secure bolt on pic.# 17 and nut on pic.#3 and a bolt on pic.#4.
P.S. Do not forget to put the Stiffness changing ring (Reed the KYB AGX manual)on the top of the Strut before you slide the whole thing in.

19. Here we go! Everything is done! And we just saved some money $$$ grin
Rear installation is litle bit harder than front and take about 1 hour on each side to install. Front takes 30 min on each side to install.
Here is the link for FRONT INSTALLATION by Me CLICK HERE!
Ok I'm Done. wave

Most hardest part it's to put the strut back in place.
But if you take the Muffler off first and it will be easy.
But i did everything with muffler on.
Front installation is Easy too.

Coil overs was really bad... Very stiff. And my car was bouncing like a basketball. thumbsdown
After i change everything it's feel so nice and soft.
It's stiffer than a stock suspension but lot more softer and nicer than those Cheap coil overs. wave

I know you're proud of your installation but I do not recommend ppl to do this. I recommend people to use a spring compressor. I know this may work but I don't feel as if it is safe for everyone to perform. It is easy to mess up and can cause injury to yourself and damage to your car.

Excellent install guide. Very detail. But, Steven is right. If you're not mechanically incline, this is very dangerous without spring compressor.
