    not really as there is too little room to get the nessecary spring compressors on.

    it's only 6 nuts/bolts to get the strut out, so it's not a really big job to do..

    it's sooo much easier to do with the strut off.. it makes it a really quick job to do.just whip the compressors on, take the tension off the spring, and then clean the spring and glue the sleeve on..then let the tension off while seating the spring back in the lower pan..compressors off and refit the strut..

    they're not new one's.. the spring seats are a 'in service' mod to stop spring bind and the resulting knocking from the front suspension..Not all the cars will have had this mod done..even 02 are still having this done for the 1st time..
