Re: Strut removal tool

Bentley shows two tools -- the super deep socket, and what looks like a medium
socket that allows access to the strut piston rod with a hex wrench.  

1. Which one are you refering to?
2. Where is it (or both) available & for how much?
3. Can you change the bounce stops and/or the strut bearing with this method ?
4. How easy is it to preserve the alignment?

Thanks much -- been contemplating this task for a couple weeks.

PS - Parts Place for VW (nee recycled) has what looks like the 2nd tool for
$20 (more precisely, a substitute for the 2nd tool).
