Hey guys!

Just had all the front suspension done after the car was in an accident! Went under the bonnet today and noticed the nuts on top of the shock towers are all loose and can even be unscrewed by handy. So it may seem like a stupid question but are they supposed to be Like that?!?

Are you talking about the top shock nuts? no they shouldnt be loose (or any bolt in the suspension) if they come undone, the strut can fall out if the car is jacked up or suspension reaches full travel
