Having trouble finding a good write up on a 2005 gti suspension . I'm planning on swapping out th springs on my MKiv tomorrow and want a mini refresher course on the presedure . I've done this on my 09 gti but I'm hoping that it will be even simpliler hopefully haha.

More complex sadly as you need an impact gun or to make your own specialty tool. You have to loosen the upper strut nut while keeping the strut from spinning. After that it's 2 bolts lol

This is my hand made tool. Just my socket is ground down so I hold it with a crescent wrench.
