Re: I need some tech info on a quantum. (busted-ass-jetta)
quote:[HR][/HR]the car is a mid 80s 5 cyl quantum wagon with an auto trans. Im thinking of picking it up for 300 bucks, It needs struts, and maybe a few other things, are the struts just like that of an a2??[HR][/HR]No, but they are the same as Audi 4000 (up front at least)
quote:[HR][/HR]or are they set up differently, meaning can I use my a2 strut nut to get them off. [HR][/HR]you can use your A2 tools to get teh struts off. The design is quite similar, but not exact same parts.
quote:[HR][/HR]also how are vw auto trannies?? I know they arent performance based, but are they reliable?[HR][/HR]AFAIK they Audi 3-speed Auto tranny is not the best unit in the world. Ask the general Audi forum about this.
quote:[HR][/HR] and how about performance parts?? like springs and struts, do they make them??[HR][/HR]Shocks and springs are very hard to find (rear axle especially) but engine upgrades are no problem, the sky (or your wallet) is the limit here.
