still....

but im gonna help you out, my advice, use the the spell checker, use grammer to an extent that we can understand what you are saying. Im not sure whether your talking about coilover height and strength? or the top front strut bolt.. in i think theres no specifc torque specs for it.

this is probably my fault as to why no one knows what im trying to ask lol....when you open the box and tak one of the coilovers out, they have an aluminum cap at the top with one or two strut nuts on there. they are at the end of the threads on the rod that goes in and out (wow) and i dont know what to do with them, how far to thread them on, etc. maybe that will help

Re: (sxracer001)

Your helper springs should be fully compressed when the car is on the ground. If you crank the coilovers up (close to stock height), then there is also a chance that the helper springs will be fully compressed at all times.
As far as the alignment, you should still be able to get it close to stock specs. There is usually enough adjustment even in stock struts for ±a few degrees of adjustment, maybe you should consider taking it to another alignment shop. If you want to buy camber bolts anyway, they're about $30 and you can get them at http://www.nopi.com.
