What way does the strut go??

This is a discussion on What way does the strut go?? within the Suspension and Handling forums, part of the General Help category; KYB AGX? Does the (1-8)adjuster face the motor or the wheel? Thanks!...

    my guess would be wheel as that's how the HAL QA1 shocks go. easier to reach from the outside of the car than have to crawl under the car.

    What about the strut mount it is at a 20 degree angle like" / " mine looks backwards. If I put the 1-8 adjuster on the inside it will look right but now it looks backwards?

    I cant get the two bolts to line up at the lower A arm? I guest when the suspension is compressed it will look right, but for now I am stumped.

    Well the front shocks usualy will only go on one way because of the slanted assembly on the lower A-arm. I have not seen then KYB AGX though...

    THE DIAL GOES ON THE INSIDE BRO!(ENGINE SIDE) I JUST put mine on yesterday and ran into the same problem, LOL. Its supposed to face the motor so you can see it. Think about it, if it was facing the wheel, how would you see the dial to know what the setting was w/o taking the wheel off? I tried every way to put it facing outside; I even put it into a vice (the bar end w/the mounting holes) to spin it around, but ended up pulling the whole table with it. Dial goes inside
    You will find that your installation will go considerably smoother!
