HEy thanks for the info on the struts, i did change the gasket. and mounted them back in place. i had a problem with the top center nut. after i installed it took it for a ride and it was too loose , had to tighten them again until i had all the looseness out it seem o.k now.not sure on the torque either on them. i tightened just enough. where the bearings are free.
great help for your answer thanks again.
