So I guess the question is. Will those springs from d911 fit and work? I'm pretty sure they will.

I used this DIY pdf plus a few other threads that are linked to yours on setting ride height. Good luck and have fun

That is awesome, thankyou for that I'm unsure if I'll try and attack it when they arrive or wait until dad comes to visit at the end of January. Really excited!

I have realised there is absolutely no way I can wait for another month to install the springs, I'm far to excited! They should be here by the end of the week, so I'm thinking I'll go out to the shed every day and spray some wd40 on all of the nuts that I'll be taking off. Does this sound like a good thing to do?

Kroil or PB Blaster, WD40 will be next to useless.

I don't think you will have much trouble with any nuts. The struts come out relatively easy. Just make sure you have the right tools and special fitments.

Stupid question here, the torque specs for the 3 13mm strut bolts is:

27 ft/lbs for post 91
15 ft/lbs for pre 91

if my car is a 91 model, which one do I do?

Is the strut the early version or the lowered revised version? Post a picture will help.

Thanks for that, it was tight getting those torqued up, I ended up using the crows foot I got for my engine sump plug in there!
