Fits the following:
The Ultimate Beam comes raw, (non painted, unless ordered otherwise) with adjusters installed (unless ordered otherwise), delrin bushings, grease zerks and hardware for shocks and adjusters. Tie rods do not come with the beam. Torsions are included at this price.
If your wheels are touching your fenders on turns, check out the article, "How do you lower your VW the right way?" before deciding on purchasing a beam. Sometimes it is just an adjustment that can be made else where for the time being until the need grows larger for one of these Ultimate Beams. If everything checks out okay, our most popular configuration is a 4" Ultimate Beam, complete with torsions/tie rods powder coated satin black. With this set up, you can fit most sets of wheels, disc brakes, air ride in the future and it will be coated for a long lasting finish.
The Ultimate Beams are built for all Left Hand Drive Beetles, Ghias and Things. Pre 66 vehicles have link pin models and 66-later models have ball joint. These beams are not interchangeble.
Why an Ultimate Beam?
Do you need to lift or lower your front end? Are your wheels scrubbing the fenders? Did you add some disc brakes or drop spindles on your ride and now they stick out? Are you trying to achieve a certain look? If any of these questions pertain to a need that you have, then The Ultimate Narrowed Beam is your answer. The Ultimate Narrowed Beam has about seven inches of adjustability so you can fine tune where you want your car. Because of the adjuster we use, you can adjust your car up and down by 1/16th inch increments. That means you can get the exact height and look you are after. If your wheels are sticking out after a disc brake addition, installing drop spindles or after installing a new set of wheels, The Ultimate Narrowed Beam is the product to remedy this issue. We can narrow a beam up to 4? with shock towers and no body modifications. The inside dimension is 29 13/16". That gives a clearance of 1/16" on each side.
Pro's versus Con's
These beams are built with 100% brand new parts made in the USA. Each front end is jig built to ensure straightness and longevity. The beams are MIG welded for strength and clean looks. Everything is assembled but the derlin bushings so the beams can be powder coated, chromed or painted for the best fit and finish. We now offer them with or without adjusters. W/o is set up for air ride. You can have an adjustable beam now and install air ride at a later time with out issue.
Some companies use stock beams, narrow them, install adjusters and replace the bearing and bushing with poly urethane. This is old technology. Some companies skip steps to save time and money. We do not skip a thing.
