Keep in mind the front shocks are probably part of a McPhearson strut assembly meaning you will pay about $100/each for each strut + about $50 for each to have someone compress the springs with a good hydraulic spring compressor and replace the cartridge. (Although threaded rod type compressors are available as loaner tools at places like AutoZone, compressing auto springs can be hazardous to your health - even kill you- if the spring slips out of the compresser)
LOL yea my friend was doin his and as he was unscrewing the tophat it flew off and hit him in the dick lol
the threaded ones worked for me, the chances of them slipping off if properly attached seem slim unless you are throwing the assembly around
