Hi, I have an 06 VW Jetta with >300k miles and worn out suspension.
I am trying to assemble new struts and the spring will not stay aligned in the center on the top bearing. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.
I’m using macpherson strut compressor tools at 180 degrees from each other and alternating side to side a little at a time. I have even clamped the top end of the spring in place while undoing the compressors. When I remove the clamp the spring moves out of alignment.
I have all new OEM parts, including the springs. The old ones had the passenger side sagging an inch lower than driver side.
Can I put it on the car like this? I really don’t want to. Thank you for any ideas or advice.
