ciscoskeebler: no way in freaking hell was my passenger side that freaking easy!!! I didn't want to remove my axel so I had a bitch of a time with the control/A arm... BULLcrap BULLcrap BULLcrap!! ya and the easy install is not only the safest but THE EASIEST
Ryan Goodnight: Good stuff on using spring compressors.
Guidosaur: And then I watch Haggard Garage cut springs with a disc grinder lol
Donald Newton: Great video! What is your opinion on whole strut assemblies with spring pre-installed? I have 2006 Jetta TDI and would to replace the struts and shocks. What supply sources for after market VW parts do you like to use?
sheaffej: Very helpful. Thanks!
Eddie Galon: When compressed with clamps, I would suggest pointing the top of the strut away from your face. Failure of that compressor at that moment could be the end of your eating whole foods for along time ;). Nice vid though.
osky basile: You're a big ...., help you gave to this video had no idea how to disarm my cushions, very good and simple explanation. GENIOOO !!!!! desde Argentina
derek wininger: Cant i do it with out a spring compressor and just use the jack to compress it then loosen the nuton top slowly lower the jack till it decompress'? Thats how my uncles use to do it
Ivan Vega: I am going to be doing this job on a 2001 GTI VR6. For some reason I always though that in order to remove the strut you have to remove the ball joints on the control arm to make enough room to remove strut. That's what I had to do for my 2008 GTI which made the experience painful :( Great vid!
bunkerbuster: oooooooor you can just pay a little more and get quick struts. so much easier and safe.
Salman Almahal: very helpful video thank you
Steve Decker: My vw has the same problem too as did your car, the whole strut assmbly moved because of a broken mount would this cause a noise from the front end and if so is this a problem that gets gradually worse after time
Agent Office: Best
Charlie Quiroz: Buen tutorial.
Juan Sanchez: Very good
SickTwistedFrq: Is there anyway you can find a location where the lighting is consistent. The camera iris reacts to the bright and sometimes your subject is in the dark making it difficult to make out some of the finer points of your narrative. However, I appreciate the information and I will be viewing a few more times prior to my own VW strut swap. Thanks for referencing the compressor part number!
SwPiotrek: Great video.
I very like your camera moves!
dieselworld: Because I wanted to keep the factory springs and I know how to properly use a spring compressor and not scared of it.
Rebootrevival: Why don't you just buy a new strut shock coil set, bypassing any chance of the coil decompressing and reeking havoc.
