Default AE FT shock tower question...

I just bought a brand new FT carbon fiber shock tower of off ebay, well it came in today and so i was installing it and found that the upper arm hinge pin bushing will not fit into the carbon fiber shock tower the tower is drilled for screws not a bushing. I bought the car with KH shock towers.

its this tower

So how do i install the hinge pins?

found the problem

Link does not work? Sounds like you bought the wrong tower. I can't see it working if it can't take a bushing or its the rear tower.

The link you posted at the other forum showed a rear shock tower. So you have the wrong tower if you are trying to put it on the front.
