    The top not on both sides just spins around and doesn't tighten. Did I do something wrong? there is nothing to grab on to like on the stock shocks.

    I knew it was something so simple and obvious that people don't bother mentioning it. Now I am embarrassed. I probably should have figured it out before I put the shocks in. Oh well, I have a full set of 5100's now and the ride is sweet!
