Description Classic VW's Equipped with these Components Complete Details
The Best way to lower 1955 through 1967 Classic Volkswagen Split Type 2 Bus is with a Complete PRObuilt Lowering Kit from Airkewld. It lowers the bus 3.50" or 89mm up front and 4" or 101mm in the rear from *stock.

Stock is a relative term. Even though you have not changed anything over time, you are assessing the vehicle's overall height as it currently sits. But it has relaxed over time, gradually starting to sag. This is what a stock bus at stock height looks like off the showroom floor, over a 5" gap between the top of the tire and the upper fender arch. Even the rear wheels have some positive camber.

The products supplied in this kit will lift the vehicle back up to stock height, then lower it by 3.5" and 4".

5 of 5 You made my bus Amazing November 25, 2017
Reviewer: Jason Porter from American Fork, UT United States  
Pete and team did an amazing job on a full suspension for my 65 Walk Through Deluxe. Their willingness to work with me, a ClassicVW newbie, was admirable. Pete was never annoyed with my long list of questions. The product The delivered far exceeded my expectations. I can not recommend Airkewld enough.
