Hey guys,

I just installed Rokkor coilovers on my 99' Miata and when I try to tighten the top hat nut on top, it rotates the shaft or piston as well... so I can't get a good torque on it.

I know most higher end coilovers have an allen key hole so that the piston or shaft doesn't move when an allen key is inserted into it... but these Rokkors have this design (see picture below). I can put some small vice grips on it and then use a wrench to tighten the nut down, but after a while it's hard to hold the vice grip from moving. I'm not sure how tight these top nuts need to be...or how important it is to torque them down...

Thanks!

Do what you're doing. It's a nylock nut. It'll be fine.

Weird design though. Even OEM has the allen head shaft.
