so im going to get some springs to lower my a3 8v saloon, i mailed the fella that will be doing them and he said as well as the springs i will need to buy both front top strut mounts assemblies aswell as the captives that hold the bolts/mounts in place because they strip and corrode, so im unsure of what i need to be honest, can anyone enlighten me

Just had my stock springs changed out for MSS Kits, all I gave my installer was the springs. Nothing else needed and nothing changed.

Sometimes it's worth changing the strut top mounts depending on their age.
