Q: How do I install the front strut assembly?

asked by on

I recently installed new struts on my Pilot and immediately noticed a squeak so i took the strut back out again. Then I noticed the top mounting bracket on top of the coil spring is tilted and needs to be installed a certain direction. The original cap has a diamond on it. Which direction should that diamond point when installed? The top assembly is marked "front" but not that cap that houses the coil spring.

My car has 135000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
