Putting together eibach lowering springs on KGB struts . I have the parts out of the car and I'm about to assemble the "coilovers".
Which way do I align the top plate that has the three studs? They have to line up exactly when I lower the car onto the cradle. Is there a specific way of putting the springs and struts together that ensures the studs in the top plate will line up with the holes in the fiero body?

You've got the Fiero and all the parts there, right? Before you assemble the struts, take the top plate over to the car and see which way it needs to be orientated to go up into the holes. Works for me!
