Wheel Changing

What is the name of the guide tool used to hang a wheel? I'm referring to the pin-like lug insert that supports the wheel being mounted or dismounted. If anyone can point me to a resource where I can find this specifically for my VW, I'd appreciate it.

Also, what are the specs for the wheel lugs on late model GTIs? That is, what are the diameter and thread specs?

Its a 'Wheel Mounting Assist Tool', comes in plastic or metal sells for about $5-12. I dont think it has a fancy name. M14x1.5 is the thread for the tool and lug bolts.

Shock installation will be the same as coilover installation. Dan's spring DIY will help too, but it doesn't cover the rear strut.
