looked at it on the internet to see what the dumb kid i sold it to has done to it.. as if blowing the tranny wasnt bad enough.. im so dumb for selling that car... but im getting another gti for a d/d maybe
1992 black 8v. with alot of miles, from the original owner. its got 8year old H&R's and bilsteins, and a new TT exhaust... gotta keep the miles off the S4.
Take a second and thank a Veteran.
Today I fixed my bilstein rear shock that popped it's circlip. Then I took it for a test drive, and realized the other side has to be done now as well. Because I had those special washers that go over the circlip, but for some reason I put them below the circlips so that they didn't work right.
It works now, just feels right, where the other side doesn't and I can feel a lack of balance in the rear slightly especially at speed.
Cause one has the spring seat on the washer the other does not. The one has the lower spring seat on, and the other is missing it..hehe, the one was torqued right, the other was not. hehehe....oh well...
I gotta think do I wanna do this repair today or tomorrow..I think tomorrow. Cause it drives well enuff for the moment, and I'm just tired of doing work on my car today.
