    It cant hurt, im sure ive read that they arent really neccesary tho. I've certainly never needed a tool to drop the suspension, but i've never done it on the A3 tbh

    That looks like a top mount nut tool.
    What are you planning to do to the suspension? You'll need a tool like that to remove the top mount and spring from the strut.

    scarying reading here.......You will need a set of spring clamps to compress the spring ...the tool above is as squirrel says a strutmount nut tool which you will need to take off to change the spring ......
