If I bought the car would this be easy to reverse and if so how much would it cost? Also is there anything specific I should watch out...
  2. VW GTI SUSPENSION
    I am getting a rattle on the passenger front suspension on bad roads, so when I was tracing an oil leak on a hoist, i saw this... The spring has, i don't know, flattened over itself? :wtf2: I have never seen a spring do this, but I assume the spring is beyond repair and with the front coil...

    So I finished installing my Bilstein shocks and Neuspeed springs yesterday. I turned the car on once I finished the front (back was still untouched) and I got an ABS and Traction Control light.
