The sleeves should fit on and be loose enough to get the o-rings in between them as well. Sounds like you may have received the wrong ones.OlyScortGT_93 said:Okay, I have another issue now...I popped the caps off the struts and removed the spring perches but now my coilover sleeves won't clear the strut body. They are Chassis Tech C/O's. Should I have ordered ones for the 97+ Escort? I have a feeling that perhaps they sent me the wrong ones..I ordered the 91-96 Escort C/O's.
