Actually, spring perch retaining plate is there to hold the suspension up when the car is lifted.

But I do see what you mean now. So yours stayed high enough to not use the upper plate and guide the upper perch into the tower cavity before tightening the top washer? Mine wouldn't. And I've done mine with drop springs and coilovers.

But at any rate, I can tell you it's not a hood support.
