    Coilover fitting

    I going to attempt to change my standard suspension to coilovers tomorrow. i was wondering if any of you have any horror stories about doing this or is there any special tools i need to have before i get car up on the stands.
    (aparts from spring compression clamps and a good socket set)
    Or is there any tips and advice you guys would offer before i start this job.

    Cheers

    Chris

    But if it's a Quattro, won't you need a spring compressor to get the rear springs out?

    Don't know if he HAS a Quattro or not, but figured I'd ask [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif[/img]

    You need it on non quattro AND quattro as the spring and damper are not one unit.

    The coilovers have arrived and the front shocks are one unit as expected and i dont think will require the compressors to fit them, but the rears as Rich says the damper and spring aren't one unit when fitted to the car.

    My car is a non Quattro.
