Here's a few tips so you don't have to end up replacing it twice:
1.) don't use the old nylock nut (I did this the first time around and ended up having to drill out the old nut because it was cross-threaded)
2.) Hand tighten the nut upon initial installation, un-compress springs, assembly strut + install
3.) Put the tire back on
4.) Lower car
5.) Shake your car to settle the position of the strut.
6.) It says not to use an impact gun but I was unable to get the nut tightened without doing so...just take it easy when torquing
I was finally able to get rid of the clunking with these steps!
One thing I want to point out: Most aftermarket shocks are significantly firmer than the OEM shocks they're designed to replace. In almost every case, you will end up with a much stiffer ride. That's a really good thing for cornering and performance driving, less so for day-to-day driving and/or commuting. This KYB is one of the very few shocks/struts out there that won't make your car ride more firmly than it did originally, so choose wisely.
