    Hi Steve,
    Would you mind giving me an appraisal for the detensioners I have listed ? Just so I have an idea what is fair . Even if you are not interested in buying them. I appreciate it.

    Good morning Steve,

    May I ask, is it a 164 Sport or do you need a Koni Sport (Yellow) rear strut?

    Did you have the specs on the body work? I have a 164 with some minor front-end damage from a 5 mph "fender bender" in an ice storm. The front crossmember/bumper in front of the radiator is pushed back far enough that there is no space between the bumper and the radiator (or very little space) and the passenger's side headlight frame is bent to point upward. I'm going to get it all straightened out but I need some measurements to send with it to the body shop.

    OK - righty or lefty rotation to compress or is it like the GTV6 rear calipers where it depends?!?

    I use C-clamp and curved vise grips or water pumps to compress and rotate rear piston.

    Also spray under rubber boot in outer piston groove so boot does not twist.

    Steve - doing research indicates the need for a "rewind tool" for the rear calipers use for EMR brake in order to replace pads?!? Guidance on how to finesse this one?

    Will get under the car this week. Will advise. THX Ive decided to change out all pads at the same time. Need to research winding back the pistons in these calipers. CIAO
