im about to tackle the same job. If you have comcast/ondemand there was a really good show about installing coilovers on this show called "Tricked Out" on DIY channel. goto diynetwork.com look for automotive>trickedout you should find a helpful guide. good luck!

Instead of taking the upper control arms off the car to get the whole upper shock mount off, just squeeze the shock in between the lower control arm and the upper mount while it's still on the car. That way you can circumvent dealing with the devil bolt.

nice pick up....

i just recommend reading through the aw writeup (its for an s4, same difference)

except the only thing different i recommend is that in the rear, they will tell you the springs arent under much pressure once off the car, and to just take the top mount bolt for the shock off, but ill tell you, the shock flew across my driveway, and almost hit my moms $53000 cadillac....

take your time, lube up the bolts each of a few nights before you tackle it (mainly the top bolt holding the steering knuckle to the uper control links... mine werent too tough to get off....

oh yes, i completely forgot about that...

its very possible, just takes some wiggling to get the lower shock mount around the cv boot and the control arm...

It's really not hard at all to do coilovers on a quattro. PM me if you have any questions. You don't have to remove any controll arms. Good luck.
