It's not so much to line them up but to keep it flush with the bottom of the shock. The outer bolt can't even be put on unless I tilt the perch. Is this what you're describing?I remember that, one of the things that sold me on roller perches. Seems like at one time I had to twist the perches over with a pair of vice grips clamped to them to get the shock studs to line up with the holes. No such thing with roller perches.
Sweet, thanks. Now I worry about those bolts spinning above the coil. May tack them on if they give me trouble. We'll see.Been a while back, but yes, that is exactly what I meant. I remember being worried about bending a shock stud before getting enough threads on the other to start the nut. No doubt it goes better with the car's weight on the wheels, but I always mess with the shocks when it's jacked up.
