    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.0t

    Year : 2013

    Default Asking if anyone might be able to help.

    I've had them on my watching section of ebay for nearly 2 months now but i've finally done it, i've just purchased a set of FK AK coilovers for the GSi. I'm glad in a way i waited now as they had them up for £298.99 (which i thought was cheap) but on Thursday they reduced the price to £188.95. Now when it comes to major stuff like suspension i'm useless so what i'm asking is there anyone that can fit them for me once i get them, i don't mind traveling (to a certain extent) and i'll sort you out with some cash.

    If anyone could help me i would be very grateful indeed.

    Cheers Dave.

    So should i get new droplinks anyway even if they don't need to be changed.
    Is there anything else that people would recommend to change whilst doing it, what about on the rear.

    Yeh id get them anyway, your going to be taking the top bolt out of them anyway so be as well replacing them while the wheels are off. They were also the hardest bolts to remove when i did them last week so i'd give them a good spray a day or two before you do it!

    Rear should be ok, just remove the bolts holding the shock in (the bottom ones a pain) and the bolt on the rear axle closest to the rear of the car. The "how to" on here has more bolts than that removed but i found just removing that one was enough to get the spring out.

    A trick we found was to use the wheel nut bar in with the spare tyre as a kind of "L" shaped breaker bar on tge end of the ratchet as we couldn't get the bolts off with just the ratchet as we were weaklings! And there isnt much room to get any force on the bolt on the bottom of the shock
