Before fitting I covered the threads in copper grease and wound the rings and perch up and down a few times then set the pretension on the springs.
Covers fitted and adjusters protected from damage during fitting.
One of the rear strut mounts. No major rust, just a little bit of surface rust. Gave it a good rub down and applied some Bilt Hamber Hydrate 80 rust killer before fitting the coilovers.
Couple of pictures of how it sits.
