    Hey can someone help me. Not sure what I’m doing wrong but trying to put the stock springs back on. I have everything lined up. Spring to the bottom of strut, top hat and rubber was where it was.

    But after I compress the springs and tighten the top nut and then decompress this is what happens.

    Is the hat really all the way down? Can you get the nut started?
