Like Norm said ... Sears. I would have preferred the flare-nut type over the crowfoot set that I have. They would provide a better grip on the nut and prevent rounding.

Some Blue LocTite also does wonders in that situation...
Be sure youi get your upper strut mounts clocked correctly
when reinstalling them...

Thanks alot guys! I think I'll go with the flare-nut type as you suggested 6-Speed.

157dB... are you talking about making sure the arrow on the top strut plate is pointing in the right direction? If so I checked and re-checked that.

I had a similar problem with my Koni Sports. The strut rod rounds very easily when you are trying to hold it in place. Had a crows foot and still had to settle for good-n-tight.
