Quite possibly the greatest thread in the history of threads! That 98 page doc is amazing and timely as I'm currently doing Giubo, CSB and shocks/struts/springs

Thank you!

I see this file is still useful I just logged back on this forum because I want to put my car back on the road, when I get some time...
I received a PM about a mistake in it, I'll look into it shortly.
