Two trips to the dealer for bolts.
3 hrs pounding w/ 5lb hammer & punch.
One trip to Motorkars (local VW shop) to have ball joint bolt air hammered out.
Rear suspension done in 30 min.
Getting everything done before your wife comes back from weekend getaway.
PRICELESS!!!!!! :thumbup:

Those upper front ball joints are a bitch! Herman's write up was priceless, but no way we got those out with an extension for a punch and rubber mallet!! Yep, 45 minutes for both the rears and hours on hours on hours for the fronts.

But worth it!

Eibach Pro-System done last weekend, rear 1 hr to remove and Install. Front 6+ hours. Those upper ball joints need a hammer and a punch, get a new cross bolt for each side before beginning, it is easy to bung over the threads when trying to get it out.
Remember: reuse the rear bumpstops and use the new supplied bumpstops for the front.
