You're missing the rear bump stops, rear dust boots, rear shock mounts, and rear upper spring isolators (rubber pads).

You'll also need new front sway bar endlinks, if you don't have those laying around already (I'm guessing no)

And it looks like you're gonna have to cut that sway bar endlink stud/nut off the one OEM strut before you can install it

Plus all new hardware. Pretty much every bolt you touch for this job is torque-to-yield, and will need to be replaced.

really...new hardware. when I got the coils installed I'm assuming he used same bolts.. I didn't give him new ones and didn't pay for ones. wow that's re-assuring. thanks again guys.
