Evenin all - I need to change the front suspension strut top mount on my mk3 GSI (1997 phase 2) and was wonderin if it was possible to do this without undoing the bottom of of strut from the hub / steering etc as looks a right pain in the rs. I have got spring compressors etc to use so wanted to know if anybody has done this by undoing the top of the strut from the car then jacking up the front end to allow anuff clearance to swap over.

Cheers
