Front shock position
After installing new shocks on my new coil spring saddles I noticed shocks are not centered in opening in shock tower. Is this normal? I can force it center.please advise.thank you in advance.
It is normal and it is the purpose of the rubber bushings to allow for both movement and cushioning.

I'll assume the front tires were off of the ground when the photo was taken. Let the car down and the the shock should move closer to centered. Then bolt on the upper shock retainer. Chuck
