Hi. I recently got a replacement strut for my pass. side and I'm trying to reinstall my Eibach spring.This strut wasn't modified in any way, unlike the ones already on my Supra, so the spring doesn't fit very snug. Is the strut supposed to be cut on the perch so that the Eibachs fit?

I bought the car with the Eibachs already installed so I never noticed the cut. It's a small cut on the outer part of the perch.

Here's a pic to clarify it a bit. It's from SupraWes's article. I circled the problem area.



The spring coil sticks out a bit on the modified struts because of the cut, but the spring fits.

I don't remember mine but if it's not the spring seat that is cut away, it will be fine. I assumed they cut it so they can mount higher offset/wider wheels.
