RE: strut job
You will need a special tool to undo the strut top mounting nut, could be the same as your Rabbit (Golf over in Euro land), I think the axle nut is 30mm it is my '85 Coupe Q.

Subject: strut job
well, i took the money i saved buying my suspension from GPR and bought a
bentley manual. only problem is that it has to be shipped from somewhere
andblah blah blah. summary: i won't get it in time for my strut job.
that is where you, my fellow listers (hopefully!) come in. i would
_really_ appreciate it if you would answer some questions regarding this
job for me. i will be replacing all struts, springs, strut bearings,
mounts, bump stops plus the front control arms (bushings pressed in
already) on my 1990 80q.
1. what special tools do i need for the jobs? i know that on my rabbit i
need a special socket to access the top strut mounting nut. is that the
case for the audi? please say no. also, what size are the axle spindle
nuts on my car?
2. does anybody know the torque specs for the control arm bolts, axle
spindle nuts, and various suspension nuts that i will encounter along
if somebody would be willing, it might be easier to fax/fedex (using my
account, of course) xeroxed bentley pages. that would cover all of my
questions i think. i know that this is a beefy question, and i realy
appreciate your help. thanks.
