Hey

Been searching the forum looking for a guide on how to fit lowering springs. Got some Apex springs on order and was hoping to fit em myself to keep the costs down. Never done this sort of job before and was looking for some help on what to do. Was going to try fitting the rear ones myself first after reading posts on here saying they are easy to do. A basic step by step guide of what to do to change the rear springs would be much appreciated. Managed to borrow some spring compressors, are these needed to do the rears?

Cheers Guys

Rich

ThesTud rears are really easy. Just the same as a t4.

The fronts are much harder.
Iv not got time to write a full how to here but it needs a fair bit of mechanical knolege and some special tools.
I very basic terms wheel off, undo drive shaft, remove strutt and hub, fit springs and rebuild.
The anti roll bar drop link is quite often a problem to remove and we quite often fit new ones at £25 each
