TDI(s): 2000 beetle
Default 2002 TDI Beetle front strut & springs question

My mechanic is going to be changing out the alternator and cv joints on my daughters beetle. Since he is going to have a lot of the front end stuff out of the way should I go ahead and have him change the struts and springs at the same time? They are probably original and it has 270,000 miles on it. I've already changed the rear shocks and springs.

With that many miles, probably. Inspection would give further deciding factors on it. But with that many miles I'm sure they're tired.

Thanks Nero, I'll have him check 'em out but I'm pretty sure if not original they've probably been in there a long time.
