      i actually didnt have a chance to give them a call this week, but they seemed way too tall. i tryed to install them with everything else and couldnt get it together, not even close actually. bummed me out.

      the 2 post bolts on the struts did not even come close to reaching the top metal part that has the upper control arms bolt up to. rubber just seemed too tall.

      Looks like you pushed your abs sensor in to far and it was rubbing on the cv...ask me how I know

      Mine was so smashed in there I had to hammer it with a chisel! That little rubber boot came off I didn't notice it so I just pushed it all the way in

      no more work to the a4, just drunk as a skunk

      my abs light is on also from the last time i had a wheel bearing done, the guy said the sensor was heat welded in and it probably broke coming out ive just ignored the light. abs still works though

      thanks man happy bday to you!

      And i would just trim the skid plate but i have the panzer with home made hardware for it so it sits a little higher up. The ends of my stock bar basically almost reast on the plate. I dont know how i could really even make the hotchkis fit. The bar itself lays on the plate all the way across. But it is in the classifieds now so i can get my wheel project going.

      And thank you Hannah.

      Now for what should have been put together today. Exhaust shop called me back after I dropped the car off and said they couldnt do my exhaust. Have to look for a different shop tomarro.



      And one from last night when going out to my car at school.

      yah that passat was badass for sure.

      they said the downpipe would take them awile and I wouldnt have my car till next Tuesday....I work weekends so yah I need my car. Gunna have to call around to some places today.

      But they were fine with putting the testpipe in for me. It was a custom exhaust shop so I think they were a little easy on that stuff.
