Surely all coilovers are of a similar design

I have looked at the Sierra front hub. The steering arm on this also has no radius of 2.5mm on the exposed edges.

Do we need to modify them with a little linishing or was the SVA Inspector having a bad day.

UncleFista's SVA Fail serves to show us all the standard required for an SVA Pass.:
The coil-overs were fixed for the retest by putting a couple of Radio Controlled car tyres over the threaded body of the shock, the steering arm radius was sorted with a couple of minutes with the angle grinder (and look better for it too )

It's all a bit of nonsense really, we never expected it to pass first time, it was just a "punt" to get a list of problems to fix

The vast majority of it is common sense

Good luck !
