position springplate left/right rear strut

Hello,
sorry I'm not perfect in English.
Has anyone information or pictures for the position of the springplate left/right rear strut.
Distance of plate to the tire is different, this can be done wrong when installing mount.

Greeting from Germany,
offi

I didn't recall any differences between the left and right strut assemblies when I did my lift lit so I checked out the '08 parts manual to see if the components were the same and they are except for the spring which is offset. You can download a Parts book from here and take a look at section 17.

I think that both stuts are equal.
Maybe I have one of the two 180 degrees twisted built in.
It would be very good if you are look under your pat.

Thank you, offi

Here you go. Mine is a Compass with the 2 1/8' lift kit and 235/60-18 tires.

Left


Right



It looks like your drivers side is 180 degrees out. On the top plate the "3 ears" go front, back and to the outside.

Bob,
thanks for your pictures.

Yes looks like.
And I must say, then the distance is not very large, therefore may have some contact with the tires.
Before I start with the rebuilding, perhaps there is someone with original chassis?

Hello,
GRAMS is right.
So i have to turn the suspension on the drivers side for 180 degrees to the right position.
Super the light rubber noise is lost.

Thank you, offi

Sorry we didn't get more pictures posted for you. I tried to catch my neighbor at home, when it wasn't raining, to get some pictures of hers but things just didn't work out. Glad you got it fixed, though!
