Hi, since boarded in from the virus, one good result is I finally get to my do list on the 280Z! I took off the front strut towers to replace the struts and springs and all bushings. I had purchased the Energy front strut rod bushings but do NOT understand where these go from the repair manual diagram. They came in a pack of four see attached pic. Can easily see where the bump stop will go but not these?

Also, second concern is the inside of the strut tower has quite a bit of RUST in it and do not know how to deal with that. The rears are now done and they were totally clean with no rust inside...

Any input would be most welcome! By the way, my car is a 75 280 2+2. Thanks!

Just .02c ...Would the two rubbers perchance go in part 7, bound bumper rubber? Most shocks I knowof have back-to-back rubbers, or face-to-face if you choose, that go around the stem of the shock.

Thank you, I have a bump stop for #7... I posted on another forum and someone said they thought those were from the TC rods which are not struts but they are the same size as those. I plan to just send back to Rock Auto. Stay well out there!
