    Question Fitting coilovers

    So, my first major Mod is to fit some coilovers to the S3

    I have searched but can't find any info on the actual process so what I'm wondering is there anything specific I need to know?

    I have fitted loads of springs on Mondeos so not worried but never done anything on a quattro so any tips/or things to look out for would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Dave

    Don't forget to disconnect the Zenon level sensors!
    And reconnect again after.
    They can easerly be broken.
    And use a good spring compresser, to many people get hurt doing this job!

    OK so all being well the Collies' will be going on this weekend so as an after thought,

    Is there any other bits I should check when I got the car in bits or signs of wear and tear to look out for?

    With my lack of knowledge I want to try and give myself a head start on any potential problems down the line
