Did you have any issues with it hitting the upper control arm I also have to use a jack to jack up the wheel to get the front lca close to the bottom of the strut to put the bolt in

That's what I'm seriously wondering because I ordered them from a site I've never ordered from because they had them for the cheapest price they only thing that tells me there for my cars are the stickers on the box that say ap1 s2000 and have the part number

Are they labeled as left and right? Look for the l and r.
Gnarly Ball joints and bushings can also make this happen.

How do these coilovers look compared to others?
