Im running BC Racing Coilovers, they came with two front endlinks. My friend had installed them but didnt tighten them down properly. They were loose banging around making a knocking noise. What would be the best way to tighten the top part of the endlink. I tried a wrench but it does not fit. Theres no space on the bc coilovers where the top nut bolts on too. On the oem strut you can see the bottom lip bent downwards giving you room for a wrench. Anyone have any methods they used ? My friend had used a impact gun and stripped that bolt causing it to be worse.

The only advice I can give you is the same advice I would give myself.... don't try and fix shit that ain't broke in the first place

Well don’t take my advice but when you have a lowered car it’s better to use shorter front endlinks...

Plus, don't let your 'friend' near your car again with anything other than foam gloves on! He sure doesn't sound like any kind of a mechanic. 'course that's just my opinion, and you know what those are like . . .
