Removing The Front Suspension ~ White Wookie

Published on February 17, 2017 under White Wookie Build

MK3 suspension

Today on Project White Wookie build, we are removing the front suspension. There are a few reasons the entire front suspension is being removed. I will be painting the engine bay. To properly paint the bay, I needed the suspension out of the way. It works out well because I will also be replacing the bushings, and painting the suspension components. This video also is paired up with a Facebook live show. You will be able to see some of the comments and question as they come in via FaceBook live. This is the first time I have done it this way. I would love to get your thoughts.
