Only the centre nut. Hit it with a hammer, should come loose.
I was just about to try that , didn't at first cause I wasnt sure how safe it'd be with the springs compressed , I read a few things about using spring compressors that I think have made me more nervous then I should be lol

Post them up, Im curious about this. When I did mine a year ago the tops came off pretty easily, so Im curious about why yours were so snug that it took pry bars and a hammer
Good luck, take pictures, ENJOY THE GARAGE TIME!

Post them on here. We'll let you know what you have.
Here's some pics of the shock absorber & top mount, I tried to get pics showing everything, unless it's the nut on the bottom I don't see a gland nut or am I wrong ?
I looked up ohlins suspension but pretty much only found stuff for bikes, if I can't use the inserts with these what would be better to do return my koni sport kit or try and find front and rear strut housing ?

Whoa, those are cool! I read something this morning abut them, I assume you, maybe, bumped an older thread. But I didnt know Ohlins had made something like this for our cars till today, rare find, I'd say. NICE!

Ah yes. Ohlins are quite common, at least in Japan.

Those are definitely not the stock housings so not sure if you can put in the Konis due to the nut assembly in the bottom for adjustment.
This is the first time I've worked on my suspensions didn't know they weren't the stock ones and already got the konis. Was hoping I wouldnt have to return them

Maybe a rare find but not want I was wanting to see , I had new Koni inserts to install now I don't know if I should return the Koni sport kit or try and find some shock absorbers to use for the Koni , can't see it being easy to find a full set of all 4 havent had any luck so far
