Did you bother to read the instructions that came with the kit???

Quote:
Dust cover support must be removed. Use a 1/4” drill bit and drill out the 3 spot welds on top. Drill the weld only do not drill strut!
Quote:
2. Next using a grinder to remove the dust cover from the top of the strut by grinding down the spot welds holding the cover to the strut. Once the spot welds are ground down you can pry off the rest of the dust cover with a screw driver. These can also be drilled out however grinding is recommend as to not drill through the body of the strut.

The sleeve just slides over the strut and line the cutout with the strut mounting tabs.

That's what I was thinking, you need to remove the dust cap.

I'm running the upr coilovers too and they are garbage. The spring rubs the threaded sleeve that goes over the strut and makes a nice noise while doing it.

You know you can just go to their web site and download the instructions! You need to remove the dust cover by drilling out the spot welds. This is very common! Just don't drill into the strut!

Mine don't rub at all, how ever my CC plates make a god awful noise!!!
