The only conclusion that I could come up with was that they are there for you to be able to attach a linear pot, in order to datalog ride height on all four corners, but to be honest I have no idea.

That' cool, I got the koni strt to go with my oem springs, and I think I put the stud facing forward.However, It doesn't affect anything. I'm getting a new set of shocks anyways. Not that konis are bad, I like to have different sets.

hardtops are expensive but well worth it, makes the car so much better. stays warmer, the wind noise is almost completly gone, stiffens up the car significantly, dont have such a large blindspot. only one i could find that was resonable was in indiana and was the silver color 91 na with a headlinear without defrost.
