Default What comes with Coilovers

So i bought Koni Coilovers used and they are in great condition. I am wondering what parts should come with the set and what tools i will need to install them. The reason i ask is because there are no tops to the set so i will have to compress the springs to put them on the shock. Do i use the stock hats or tops or w/e they call them?

You will use the stock top plate, bumpstop, and rubber thing that goes above the plate. You will need the tool to adjust the coilover height.

You can use a spring compressor to install the springs onto the shocks, or you can lower the adjusters all the way down, pull the shock completely out, then put the nut on. I can't really see but you should have locknuts that come with that set.
