Right I believe somehow I've got turned around rebuilding my front strut and I need confirmation on the correct order of component fitment.

I currently have;

Top nut,
Shock stop,
Piston rod nut
Strut upper mount rubber,
Bearing,
Upper spring seat,
Etc...


I also have a ruddy great washer that the haynes doesn't mention but the EPC does... can anyone shed light on this, cheers guys.

Might be useful to get a screen dump off TIS2000 or EPC3..

There will definately be images of the strut assembly on both pieces of software..
