96 MKVIII upper arms
on my Mark, the front air suspension was removed and the and standard shock installed. At 130K miles i now need to replace the upper arm on the passsenger side. I'm getting conflicting info on removal of shock/strut. to change the upper and lower arms does the shock need to come out? can i do the upper and reaatched to spindle then do the lower and leave it in place? Can the shock be taken out with out a special tool. just floor jack under the arm loosen everything and lower till the tension is gone?
Next question is can I do the passenger side now and the drivers side in a couple of weeks with out an alignment? what should I keep track off as i disassemble to get the alignement "close".
I only drive once a week or so to work and that's about 12 mile round trip.
i'd rather go slow than not go at all
