Just got same kit (zero-1)
Do you need to use clams on front oem shocks to take them out? I can not get my head over how one nut can hold the spring on top of the shock and same time be mounted to the body of the car... 🤔
I used a spring compressor to separate the shock from the spring, but you'll see when you remove the whole assembly from the car, that there is a nut at the very top of the shaft that holds/mounts to the body of the car, and another one--lower on the shaft--that actually holds/secures the spring to the shock.
I have a post on my build thread for when I installed pillowball top mounts in lieu of the OEM's, but the pics and tips might help you out for the install of your coilovers.

Thank you. So basicaly to remove oem set i do not need to use compressors? I need them only to reassemble the oem set (take spring from shock). Sounds good!
