I'm going to be fitting some springs to the Corrado over the next few weeks and I was just wondering does the front strut have that annoying saftey nut. You know the slotted nut with that you need a special tool to undo.

I changed my front shocks without the tool, just used a snipe nosed pliers to hold the nut and loosened it by turning the strut itself with an allen key.

Well then I will have to take you up on your generosity. It will be a few weeks before I get the time to fit these so Ill give you a bell before then and drop out and pick it up.

Sykes do them, used them in college. I could never get them tight enough using just a snipe nose pliers but it did get me out of a hole once.

I can get on to my old teacher to see if he knows where to get them?

Likewise, and it seems to do the trick. If you can get the special tool fairly handy it'd be better I suppose, though it's not critical.

Air tools do the trick! Just break the seal and you're laughing!
