    Default Strut brace fitting

    Hi Guys,

    Iv got a strut brace coming on monday to fit, I'm sure this is a stupid question but when I undo the nuts on the top of the strut, can I just undo them, fit the brace an put back on?

    or will stuff fall out from underneath that is held in place by them?

    Thanks and sorry if its dumb!

    you just got to be careful with the clearance over the brake fluid bottle....I tried some washers to lift it up ...but still didn't clear it .

    I made my own - broom handle, covered in foil (to make it look like aluminium).

    Yeah the temptation was too great for me!

    Plus I was never any good with making things and covering the broom handle with foil proved too difficult!
