    Anyone have experience DIY'ing the front struts on a the NMS? Would like to know if it's practical to do before I go in to get them checked (I have scalloping on the rear tires, looked and saw my rear shocks leaked... I know I can do that job DIY). Any help/advice would be welcome.

    Hi, I am looking a good used set of front and rear shocks for a 2001 (pre-facelift) B5 Passat GLX 4-motion. The ones on the car have given up the ghost and are much too jouncy and harsh now. If anyone has a set in the Northern NJ, NY or PA area I'd appreciate it. Thanks. Ron
