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.

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!!!

OEM PRObuilt Pedal Assembly Service - 1450 OEM PRObuilt Pedal Assembly Service - 1450

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. An option will be to install a early style cruiser pedal to replace the terrible factory pedal option. 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.

Classic VW Billet Cruiser Pedal 1455 The Standard Classic VW Cruiser Pedal - 1455

It's a pretty huge deal to insinuate a new product that isn't even out yet, will become the standard...but it will. Introducing, The Standard. This pedal will be copied by everyone, because it has been perfected in every way. Currently, it is only available with our OEM PRObuilt Pedal Service and will soon be available by itself. Some models will require modifications based on OE design but, we both know, it will be totally worth it.

These pedals are made out of a chunk of aluminum and swivel on an integrated lower leg with a counter sunk bolt for ultra clean looks. This pedal will be machined in stages to allow for the ultimate look. On the next to last step, the pedal will be hard anodized a, clear MIL- A-8625 T III Class 1 finish, followed by a final machine finish on the textured grip of the pedal. Guaranteed, your foot won't slip off of this one! Hardware included.
