Just bought a 99 avant. Bought a bentley manual. Now I'm Planning on upgrading the suspension and all that fun stuff. My dad has a decent tool selection which i have access to, but nothing to crazy.

So... what tools do you guys suggest i acquire before i can take my car apart and build it back together?

for suspension jobs you will need a spring compressor.

i think autozone has that for rent.

i would suggest air tools, impact wrench and the sort, but it's not required. also a torque wrench, but most of the time "as tight as you can get it" is good enough.
i would suggest a stout pry bar, and some liquid wrench or pb blaster.

you don't need to remove the pinch bolt!!!
