BC Coilovers Install Help

Hi guys,

I've been browsing and could not find any threads related to this (or I'm having a boy look).

I got stuck on the rear suspension, Are there any parts I need to take off from my rear stock strut and swap it over to my new BC rear struts?

I know I have to use (9), (4), and (7).

Do I need to put that metal washer between (7) and the strut tower?

From memory, there was two, one gold and black.

Thanks in advance guys.

PS.

I have a BC Racing V1 coilovers.

I was looking at the BR coilover, and my V1 doesn't have the "GOLD" washer for the rear strut compare to the BR
