Thanks for the feedback - yours and others have confirmed the issue. Lying
awake in bed and contemplating all things quattro as I imagine many listers do,
I had a slight epiphany on this subject last night. Why not use a come-along
(ratchet hoist) under the car bewteen the two anti-rollbar ends to coax them
into position? One might have to find some means (clamp perhaps) to make sure
the com-along hooks don't slip forward. If someone trys this before I get a
"chance" I'd be curious about the results.
