If you are using a stock strut rod, depending on the donor car, you may need to slightly straighten the strut rod to fit this application. A template, included in the kit, shows the correct angle for the strut rod. Our strut rod, on top was one of those. It had a sharper bend than the template below it. We needed to remove some of the bend so that when it's bolted to the lower control arm, the rod points toward the strut rod bracket on the frame.
