hey guys, I am in the middle of my GF210 install and I have the mcphearson (sp?) strut system all the way out and have taken off the top strut nut (the center one that actually connects the strut to the top hat) but the top hat won't come off. I can't find anything else to take off on any of the write ups. Does the spring have to be compressed to get the top hat off?

thanks in advance

Ryan

the spring should definitely be compressed, you dont want to injure yourself by having it shoot off. If the top bolt is off then the tophat should come right off. Not sure why yours is stuck on...

If the top nut is off it should come apart. You only need a spring compressor for the front struts. Take a rubber mallet and give the strut mount a good wack, it may just be stuck. That is if its the rear strut. If its the front strut you better have a compressor on it.
