I would not put SS nuts on the shock tower retainer. They are hardened studs (part of the reason they break) and require hardened nuts 8.8 or better. Either that or I would check them semi-frequently.

Yeah, those are nice as a new shock tower bolt ring, I was seeing the lower section that went down into the spring.

Your comments about the WD-40 and helping the spring slide into position led me to believe that they were a sort of 'droop cone' that the kids have been liking so much lately.
