tried to fix my stuck coilover. everything works fine, but i cant turn the strut into/out of the knuckle to adjust the ride height.

i've soaked it with wd40, tried locking the collars for the pretension together, and turning it that way. still nothing. any suggestions? i might just the whole strut out and go at it that way.

Schlag96 returned my RTAB tool today. He made me a custom case for it. Wow awesome. Thanks, Schlag! Now I don't need to use grocery bags to carry it around!

Mrs. Schlag is awesome too! I hope my car and I could influence Mrs. Schlag to approve more goodies for Betsy

Getting prices (roughly $500) for parts for this tune up/mainteanance I'm going to do after I get settled down in my new house. Everything's being changed as far as liquids, o2 sensors, spark plugs, much more etc! 171127 miles still driving insanely strong! (Even with a couple extra pounds in the trunk ;] )

Lol nice!
I'm gonna tackle this job as soon as the tool gets here. I've been watching videos on it, looks pretty easy and straight forward with the tool.
Excited to see how m3 RTABS feel after my replacing my shot Rtabs, which most likely have 194k (original).
