[quote=blabley;13087528]Looks simple enough, just pop off the struts and add the springs.
I'm also not sure about how much harder it would be to close the boot... So I've contacted Bearing Boys to see if they had any non-green ones and will let you know how i get on. For the sake of 5, i'm going to give it a go over xmas I can get them delivered to the parents in the UK and fit them while the family xmas rubbish is happening


Hi Blabley
Thanks for your help, keep us posted
I look forward to hearing back on how you go with it



There is no seperate top section on the F20 strutt so my interest is how the springs are kept in place at the top of the strutt.
It looks like the washer was welded where it meets the shaft and has an inserted grommet at the bottom of the spring to allow compression. Could it be a different strutt they have used?
Any advice would be appreciated.
