Hi,

I have noticed this for a wile but never did anything but i suppose there could be a problem needs addressing here.

When I jack up the rear (both sides) of my 1970 beetle one rear wheel drops a bit as usual but the other drops far more. Is there a problem? Any ideas?

Also any idea what kind of suspension a 1970 1500 has? I havent tackled the suspension before so dont know the ins and outs yet.

Many thanks :hangloose

the "drop" is normal - due to the design of the suspension. I would have expected both wheels to drop equally though - does the car sit level (at the back, both sides the same height), and are both rear shocks the same?

In theory it will be more noticeable in a lowered bug.

Thanks,

Yes on a totally level ground on axle stands the wheels are quite obviously different heights. not just an inch or so either.

I have not had the car that long but it was totally stock so i would assume the shocks are the same length but i will check.

I know the wheels drop when you jack the car but the passenger side is really dropping! :eek:

thanks :hangloose

What about with the wheels on, sat on level ground, as if you're about to get in it and drive off?
Dos it sit lower on one side or tother at the back?
