Product Description

If your VW front end seems to wander around a bit or you dread every pothole and speed bump you come across, it might be time to rebuild your front end. We've put together a kit for 1954 through 1965 Beetles and 1956 through 1965 Karmann Ghia VW Link Pin Front Ends. The base kit includes Standard King & Link Pin sets, oil-filled shock absorbers, trailing arm seals and front suspension stops. You can upgrade the shock absorbers to German King & Link Pins, KYB, Bilstein, Koni Adjustable or Coil-over Shocks. The kit even offers shorter "lowered" shocks if you're car has been lowered further than the stock height shocks will accomodate.

King & Link Pins:
The King and Link Pin kits are what hold the link pin spindle and carrier to the suspension control arms. The pins can wear out over time and cause excessive play in the front end. Furthermore, when ever your are installing drop spindles (or new spindles) you will need to replace them. Our Suspension Kit includes Brazilian Made King & Link Pins. They can be upgraded to German made King & Link Pins for an additional cost.

Shock Absorbers:
Oil filled shock absorbers are included in our suspension kit and are what VW originally installed. Gas shocks will provided a slightly stiffer ride and are what most vehicles today have. We offer KYB Excel-G and Gas-a-Just shocks as well as Bilstein nitrogen charged shocks for stock height applications. Coil Over shocks will add a bit of lift for sagging front ends .

Lowered shock absorbers are available for turned or adjustable front beams that need a shorter than stock shock. We offer EMPI's oil filled or gas shocks and KYB Excel-G shocks. Keep in mind, a "lowered" shock will not lower your car, it is merely a shorter than stock shock.


Pressing the brass king pin bushings into the steel carrier "shrinks" the bushings. VW designed this "shrink to fit" and along with the VW 224 reamer to open the bushings up to the correct size for the king pin. An original or reproduction reamer (or a .710" reamer) is must be used or the king pin WILL NOT fit into the bushing after it is installed. The reamer can also be used on new link pins bushings that are tight after installation.
