Eric contacted the PRO's at Airkewld because his rode was lacking the ride quality he was after. The PRO's built a 4" narrowed PRObuilt Beam for his application and compiled a group of parts that can emulate this ride. Enjoy.

Reviewer: Eric Bennett from RENO, NV United States
First it comes crated perfectly. The directions are very detailed but for some one that is new to the type 3 car or VW it needs a few more pictures of what and where the modifications needed to be done before the installation is done. After the install I couldn't be more pleased...the ride is incredible,fit and finish is perfection. As for tech support they answered all my questions promptly even on the weekend. I will be a Airkewld customer for life.
