Need help with coilovers!!!

Okay, so I got my lift mostly all installed yesterday at work, only one problem. I bought the toytec/billistein coilovers http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72.

Whenever i try adjust them (they are set at the bottom 1 1/2" lift) the top of the strut just starts poking out of the top plate until im able to freely move the washer and bushing up and down. If i disconnect my swaybar with this help? Im confused and cant turn corners... so if anyone has any ideas ill be glad to try them..

Thanks!
