Exclamation Rotating top of strut?

Im installing the Readylift kit right now right now.. lol. I have a 05 Reg cab Tacoma 5 lug. Im almost done with the front coilspacer, but I have to ROTATE THE TOP OF THE STRUT 120 DEGREES TO ALIGN IT CORRECTLY SO I CAN BOLT IT BACK UP! BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO IT.

DO I HAVE TO LOOSEN THE CENTER BOLT ON THE STRUT? (which im pretty sure i dont have to because it says absolutely nothing about doing that)

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME OUT HERE? THANKS

Not sure what you mean exactly, but deffinately dont mess with the center nut.

Try bolting it in the way it fits on up, then turn the bottom of shock to line up so that that bottom bolt will slide on in...
