This is what you get when you use an impact wrench to put on suspension top nuts....

A couple months ago, I was putting my suspension back together after an aborted car swap gone bad, and I got in a hurry. I zipped the nut on with my impact and you c an see the result. Luckily the nice folks at AWE were able to order me a replacement strut so I didn't have to buy a whole new set of coilovers. As an added bonus, when I took the top nut off my 1 year old strut bearing, it came apart in two pieces....

It's times like this, I love to hate VW's.

don't blame VW for you not knowing how to use an impact.

Who said any thing about blaming VW for it? Don't make assumptions, you know what it does....

looks like he's not missing any balls, pretty sure there is supposed to be some space there.

Air impact is fine for the top as long as you dont use it like a ****ing goon

turn down the torque and make sure the nut is started first http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
