i have some sports that wont fit in my struts. the part number on the side is F4-P30-0025-HO. is this the right number? they seem to hang up at the bottom of the strut and do not want to go fully in. any help is appreciated.

it seems that the strut is too narrow at the bottom for the insert to pass through. the bottom sides of the insert have rash marks on them from where it comes in contact with the bottom of the strut tube. im stumped and might just take my grinder to the inserts to make them fit.

BTW the insert only needs to go another inch to reach the bottom, so i dont have that far to go.

bilstein uses a different type of nut to hold the strut cartridge into the strut tube, if you don't have it, the standard nut won't work!!

i guess the OD of the insert was just a hair too big so i had to scrap off the paint along the bottom of it and it fit perfect.
