Title: Garage Day sometime is July
Post by: SweetVW on July 04, 2005, 06:28:24 PM
Could I impose on someone that has a compresor to help me change out my suspension?  I can rent a spring clamp for the job and a case of whatever for the help.  My tires are beyond shot and I do not want to buy new ones until I get the stock parts back in.  TIA

is this on the passat or the GTI?  if you can do a week night, I might be able to help, but would want to start as early as possible.

the GTI is harder cuz I don't have a spindle spreader for the front shocks.

I have found an air hammer with a chisel bit to be quite effective.  I'd be happy  to help (I've done a few in my time).  If you can do a weeknight, any weeknight will work for me, with the exception of this upcoming Friday/Saturday (helping swap out a clutch on Friday and I have a Rockies game on Saturday).  I did someone's jetta in about 3 hours a couple of weeks ago.

I'm in Lakewood (Kipling and Jewell).  Let me know...

Thank you and sorry for the vagueness on the car, it is the Passat.  Monday nights work best just because Carla is off and I get off from work at 3:00pm.  As for weekends, Sunday’s work well.  I am open any other night after 4:00pm, I will just have my daughter in tow.  I am guessing it won’t take that long (3hours), since the suspension has been torn down a couple times already.  We should not have any stubborn bolts and the front lower control arm bolt is facing to where it comes out forward (I never understood why VW designed it to where it comes out down towards the control arm?).
