MP HAS install

I watched Tommy l garage install of the mp has. He did a really nice job with the video and all specs in the description.

The install itself seems very easy. I am nervous to hammer the front strut though. Has anyone done this? This won’t damage the strut? Anyone find another trick?

Undo the EDC sensor if your car is equipped before you hammer away. Otherwise theres not much more to it. Your only other option is to get a press. I hammered mine to oblivion but honestly the next go around would probably get a press (hammering the struts took more time than disassembling them from the car. Perhaps i need to lift more)

Just think of it as persuasion and not so much violence and you'll be good.
