Ultimate Adjustable VW Front Ball Joint Beam - 2100 Ultimate Adjustable VW Front Ball Joint Beam - 2100

A better way to lower a Classic Volkswagen Type 1 with ball joint front suspension (1966 through 1977) other than utilizing adjusters in the center of the beam is to order an Ultimate Adjustable Front Beam.

The Ultimate Beam (UB) allows you to adjust your ride height from stock height down to *seven inches on average. The UB has Delrin bushings, a steering dampener bracket, and grease-able zerks. The UB can come in stock width, up to 4" narrowed with shock towers. New torsions, tie rods, and shocks are recommended for the best overall user experience. If you don't know what beam makes the most sense, click here.

4" Narrowed is in Stock.

There are three ways to lower your 1966 through 1977 Type 1. Good, Better, Best.

Good
- Install a pair of adjusters, based on budget and skill set - no tech support
Better - Install an Ultimate Beam - Tech Support Included
Best - Install an assembled beam like the Stage 1 PRObuilt Beam - Tech Support Included

Stage 1 PRObuilt Adjustable Ball Joint Beam Complete - 2200 Stage 1 PRObuilt Adjustable Ball Joint Beam Complete - 2200

The BEST way to adjust a Classic Volkswagen Type 1 with ball joint front suspension (1966 through 1977), up or down, is by installing a Complete PRObuilt Beam. When the PRO's say complete, they mean complete. You will not need anything in addition to this assembly.

The Stage 1 PRObuilt Beam is built on the Ultimate Beam platform. It's made in stock width and up to four inches narrower than OEM to allow for wider wheels, drop spindles, and disc brakes, that add track width.

The complete beam comes as you see it, spindle to spindle, with an entire PRObuilt steering system installed and ready to bolt in and go. For a full list of details included with the beam assembly, visit the Complete Details section here.

OEM PRObuilt Steering Box - 2480 OEM PRObuilt Steering Box - 2480

The most often neglected part of the Classic Volkswagen Drive-Train is the Steering Box. The 113415061C, which is the factory OEM part number, is the most common steering box used. It will work with *All Type 1's, Type 3's, Type 181's and anything that came with a Ball Joint front suspension.

Adjusting the steering box with the adjustment on the top of the box is often over used. As a whole, the steering box is responsible to 40% of the steering wheel play/creep in the steering system. Crazy, right? There is SO MUCH MORE that is responsible for play/creep but we as consumers assume, the steering box is the reason. Let's get into the grease and bearings of the subject...

Chassis Inspection Plate Kit - 2701 Chassis Inspection Plate Kit - 2701

A remedy recommended for many Classic Volkswagen's is the clutch tube coming loose from the stationary bracket inside the chassis tunnel. For years, the hole saw, air chisel, was used to cut open the chassis and hose clamp or zip tie the tube back to the bracket. Now, you can fix it correctly with the Chassis Inspection Plate Kit. Cutting and welding are needed to do this job perfectly.

Six Shooter Clutch Adjustment Nut - 2820 Six Shooter Clutch Adjustment Nut - 2820

There is a wing nut that, when functioning at its best, is a FIVE-out-of-TEN experience. This original nut would allow the VW owner to adjust his clutch feel to get the right amount of pedal to disengage the clutch. But most of the time, the OEM German wingnut is no longer on the vehicle, and a Chinese soft nut was chosen, and it feels like a week of not shaving your face. Heck, have you ever tried to adjust it when it was cold outside and you were twisting this wing nut, only for you to miss a twist, and like a propeller, it slaps your finger to the point of you letting out a Go#$&#)$)*_#@)_*$*it!!! Ya, we have all been there. We gave this trick little product a pretty cool name. Yeah, I am biased. We call it the Six Shooter Clutch Adjuster.

Available in Raw Steel, Powder Coated Black, Stainless Steel and NOW, Titanium!!!

Debuting on November 24th, 2023, the PRO's are proud to introduce the PRObuilt Pedal Assembly Service! This is a service of your existing pedal assembly, meaning it can not be purchased outright, no exceptions. It is built on LHD (Left Hand Drive) only.

Once purchased, the PRO's will email you a prepaid shipping label to pay for the shipping of your pedal assembly. You can then drop it off at your local FedEx DropOff location or a Walgreens location near you.

Once received, the PRO's will disassemble the pedal assembly and Ammonia Dip all the components to see the conditions of all parts received. If replacement parts are needed, these parts will be an additional cost. Pedal bushings, spring, pads and hardware are included in the purchase of this service. The OEM Clutch Lever will be reused if possible. If not, a replacement clutch shaft will be supplied with the purchase.

All steel parts will be powder coated satin black and the pedal base will be smoothed out, bead blasted and oil soaked for a clean, sano, finish. All Pedal Builds will have the early Cruiser Pedal conversion, that allows "The Standard" Cruiser pedal to be installed. All standard steel parts will be gun blued.

New Cables are optional. Pictures shown are from our Chassis Builds and only include what is listed above.
