Best way of lowering an Aircooled Beetle

Recommended Posts

Building a 1303s, and i want it to have a decent stance, but due to the fact she uses Macpherson Struts and Independent rear suspension it may be quite difficult. Im dying to get air ride in her, as it would suit me due to where i live being difficult to get in and out of the lane. Id love some tuck at the front, and riding under the arch at the rear. Been offered a set of air bagged shocks, but im unsure if they'd fit. I'd ask over at NBOC, but theres only like 5 members and nothing ever seems to happen there! I also googled and turned up nothing! Where is the best place to buy the air ride kits, or what other options do i have to get the stance im after. Cheers

I presume you are talking about a 70's model. You can get lowering springs for the front and you could get adjusting plates to fit to the torsion beam at the back. Not sure if they are still available though but if you look in the air cooled VW mags you should be able to source them. As for airbags/ hydraulics, I think Rayvern Hydraulics could make you whatever you want. Not cheap but tasty!
