you still can uscrew the RAM and take it out... the shell is welded to the strut so if it starts leeking from the connector im fukt lol!!

You should make them of thicker pipe, the strut steel is thinner and weaken at the base on the red one.
This is some Ive done before.
No. I can't plug my brain into my computer and down load it. That was just shooting from the hip after a minute of thought on what you did verses what you should have done.Originally posted by WelshBoyo@Jan 22 2010, 03:39 PM~16377023

The better way of doing that strut set up would be..
Make a shim for the inside bottom of the housing to set the cylinder where it needs to be in the housing.
Drill a hole for the fitting in the strut housing.
Have a bushing machined to take up any play between the housing I.D. and the cylinder O.D.
Then use a set crew or pinch bolt through the side of the strut housing to keep the cylinder from moving around.
Install fitting in cylinder
No welded cylinders and no service issues.
