Default Front Suspension 99ssei

I was wondering do I need the AK43 bolt kit when replacing the front struts? or that goes only with the CCR front suspentions, with I don't have. My CCR is on the back only is that correct?

The autoarts store said I will need it. Just asking before I proceed with this project.

If I don't have to replace those screws that connects to the axle, is there a difference between the actual ones and the ones in the AK#43 kit.?

Thank u

Not sure on that bolt, someone will answer that one soon.

CCR is all 4 struts.

ELC is only the rears and on a CCR equipped car the rears are CCR and ELC

I noticed that the front struts has a Connector on the top of the strut, for CCR. But they don't make those anymore correct?
Cause the struts that I purchased don't have it.

Semi correct... CCR struts are tough to find. And extremely expensive when found. The best suggestion is to go forward with non ccr struts and use the techinfo procedure to disable the CCR.
