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 completely customize able kit for 1966 through 1977 Standard Beetles and 1966 through 1974 Karmann Ghia VW Ball Joint Front Ends. The base kit includes imported European upper and lower ball joints, oil-filled shock absorbers and trailing arm seals. You can upgrade to or EMPI clearanced or FEBI/Bilstein Ball Joints, and you can select from KYB, Bilstein KONI adjustable or Coil-over Shocks. Shorter "lowered" shocks are available if you're car has been lowered further than the stock height shocks will accomodate.

Ball Joints:
1966 and later Standard Beetles and Karmann Ghia have a Ball Joint Front End. Ball Joints must be pressed in (and out) of the trailing arms. The upper ball joint attaches to the spindle through and eccentric cam adjuster. We do sell the adjusters separately if you have lost or discarded them mistakenly. We offer Meyle, Febi/Bilstein and EMPI clearanced ball joints, all of which are more than suitable replacements. The clearanced ball joints are great for extremely low or lifted ball joint front ends as they allow for more travel than the stock ball joints.

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.
