Should be no surprises. You could use a pipe wrench, but I took the little
tool supplied with the Bilsteins, cut a piece out of it so I could slide it
over the strut shaft, and then used a 1/2 drive ratchet wrench to tighten
the top cap. Note that the bump stop is internal.

To add to the tally, the intrax spings on my car drop
the front to 14 1/8" from wheel center to fender lip.
Rear is the same w/half tank of gas.  I have no
problem on NE roads.

I am going to install bilstein sports on my 93 S4 with
the Intrax springs.  I was just wondering if there are
any "surprises" when doing the conversion.  i.e., do I
use the same "pipe wrench through the spring" trick to
remove the nut securing the strut to the spring perch
area?  Do I use the same dust boots. etc.

Any tips are welcome!

Thank you, Ed
