isnt it supposed to righten into the mount that holds down the spring cap?

step 7 on page 40-10 reads:
Hex nut
-Tighten to 60 Nm (44 ft-lb)
-Compress coil spring before loosening
WARNING DO NOT loosen nut (7) unless coil spring is compressed. The spring must not be exerting force on the nut.
good luck
Edit: captain you amaze me that you still havent been banned

tbird man....the nut goes on top of the bearing,that holds the bearing down,and then the mount goes on top of the bearing/nut,then,installed on the knuckle,then the cap goes on from the top and the last nut.
