    I've got an 09 4wd tacoma 4wd. I've purchased a rough country 3" suspension lift and i'm stuck trying to get the coil over the strut. i have a coil compressor but i'm not able to get the top cap and the spacer back on to the assembly. If anyone has installed one or has some knowledge of how i can fix this it would be greatly appreciated!

    Is your spring seat/perch flipped over on the strut? There are some other threads on here where people have installed these upside down and ended up with much more lift than they expected because they did this incorrectly. I would imagine this would make it very difficult, if not impossible, to get the nut on top of the strut stem. Only a guess though. Yes, post some pics.
