Description Complete Details
 
A good way to lower a Classic Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle, Karmann Ghia or Type 181 Thing with ball joint front suspension ( 1966 through 1977) is utilizing adjusters in the center of the beam.

These adjusters will give you the ability to adjust your VW up and down a total of 7.5" when installed at 25 degrees up from parallel to the ground. This means you can go up to stock height at the highest setting and the ability to go down a total of 7.5", but you can set it anywhere you want within that range.

Do not believe the 50/50 garbage out there, it is a Band-aid idea that will only cause more harm. Your factory ball joint suspension is designed to be at a stock height, with the arms at a 60 degree angle. The stock shock is maxed out in extension and this is all assumed, that the factory torsions haven't lost any spring tension. (Theoretically, if the 50/50 method was put in place with relaxed torsions, you are putting more stress on them to index them higher giving the vehicle an unstable ride. Would it lift it to stock height? Maybe. Would it be good advice to do this to keep your family safe? No.) Installing these adjusters at 25 degrees give you the best use of travel within the range of the factory working components.


There are three ways to lower your 1966 through 1977 Type 1 and 181. Good, Better, Best.

Good
- Install these 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

Reviewer: Frank schellpeper from Jacksonville,florida  
Pete noticed that something with my order didn't seem right and went out of his way to verify it with me and help correct it instead of just shipping it as it was.
