wait, you removed the guide support and grommet that is stuck in the top mounting hole? Does KW provide a replacement for that part?

Take some pics of your car's suspension with the wheels off, so we can get a better idea of what you are talking about

I'd DIY a lot of stuff....... but I wouldnt DIY on my suspension or something that could impact the "safety" while driving unless I really know what I'm doing...

good luck

ok, I see what you are talking about. So the KW shaft is thicker than the oem shaft? Drilling out that dished washer shouldn't be a problem. FWIW, you have to do that on koni applications if you have a honda/acura, as the koni shaft is larger than the oem. As long as the parts move freely like before, and you don't have excess slop, you should be fine.

lucky you to have a nice friend/mechanic helping you out!
