Hey guys,
I dug into my 91 vert and found the shocks/ struts were doing absolutely nothing. I decided to replace the stock springs with Vogtland Lowering Springs and KYB shocks/ struts. KYB strut mounts and I cant remember what brand shock mounts. Everything went well on the rear.

When attempting to build the new strut assemblies i found that my bearing stacks (shim, thrust bearing, shim, oil seal) were completely broken in half on the passenger side. So, I ordered new ones and they just showed up.

My questions are whether or not there is a specific procedure to install these? should the strut mount spin freely once these bearings are installed and torqued? Also do these commonly fail? I would have never known it was broken if I never took it apart and steering seemed fine.
