The Narrowed VW Link Pin Torsion Leaves are for 2" Narrowed beam and are 35" wide. A narrowed link pin beam can be used in 1954
through 1965 Standard Beetles and 1956 through 1965 Karmann Ghias. The torsion leaves are sold "per tube", two sets are needed per front,
2" narrowed, Link Pin Beam. The torsion leaves are the springs that hold the front end of the car up off the ground. The torsion leaves
are held in the front beam and the trailing arms attach to the them. As the trailing arms move up or down, the torsion springs in the beam
twist to allow the suspension movement and twist or "spring" back.
The link pin leaf pack consists of 8 torsion leaves. As they stack together, (2 narrow leaves, 1 wide leaf, 1 wide leaf,
1 wide leaf, 1 wide leaf, 2 narrow leaves) they create a square shape. The leaf pack then "keys" or aligns into a block in
the center of the beam to hold the leaf pack from twisting. A center set screw aligns with a drilled dimple in the leaf pack to
secure the leaves. The front trailing arms then slide onto the leaves aligning with them and secure to the leaves with set screws.
The leaf packs are sold per tube, two are needed per car.
