Lookin for Drop help.

Postby mrdubbin » Mon Sep 23, 2013 1:14 pm

Anyone got a good location for lowering a 74 beetle? Mine looks like a 4x4 and it's driving me crazy. I don't want to spend a bunch of money and I know there is a way to do it without killing your wallet. Or if anyone knows who I should talk to about having it done if it's not an easy task I would appreciate the info. Thanks guys.

Its not too difficult if you have some knowledge of suspension. You could put in a front axle beam with lowering adjusters, drop spindles or both if you want to scrape the pavement. There are plenty of threads on the Samba covering thisc topic. I'm sure Larry or Darryl could do the work if you don't want to.

Its not a super?

Cheapest is drop spindles. If your handy with tools takes 2 hours, i would recommend new balljoint at the same time if they look remotely suspect.

Denny boy, like LukE sez, search samba & you will learn more than you want to know. It's gonna ride & drive like shit, nothin' you can do to get around that with a cheap lowerin' job.

Another thing , the roads are not conducive to a lowered car in your hood. :lol:

Read & search on samba, then get back with us.
