Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.
Does anyone know where a can find a simple guide to fitting a lowered front beam to my beetle. This is my 1st project and although i've tinkered with cars this would be biggest job i'd done. Is it something a relative amateur could do fairly easily?
Either drop spindles or welding in adjusters or buying a new beam with adjusters already fitted.
If you want a severe drop you'll want both. Spindles will give a 2.5" drop and means you can use stock shocks. On an adjustable beam any more than that on a drop and you'll need new shocks. Drop spindles will give a better ride quality but you can lower with a beam a bit and still retain some comfort.
Its all on here.
