NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. We are now only fulfilling order requests for items that are able to be acquired within 3 weeks IF we are able to get them. Longer than 3 weeks backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled, and will be fulfilled in the longer, as-advertised timeframe.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you select the "3 week backorder fulfillment option", you can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently our response time to emails is slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even when we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

1972 1/2 - 74 Super Beetle Brass Idler Arm Bushing (Small), 133-415-441-Brass
1972 1/2 - 74 Super Beetle Brass Idler Arm Bushing (Small), 133-415-441-Brass


 
1972 1/2 - 74 Super Beetle Brass Idler Arm Bushing (Small), 133-412-441-Brass is a part that replaces the horrible stock rubber bonded idler arm bushing, which is a MAJOR cause of the Super Beetle Shimmy! If the bushing is shot, the pitman arm moves all over the place uncontrolled, and your front end will shake and not hold alignment.

If your Super has been suffering from shimmies and shakes, or sloppy steering, a new idler arm bushing may be needed. This bushing is an exact replacement for the horrible bonded rubber bushing, but with the performance improvements of solid brass! This bushing is a precision fit in your existing idler arm holder assembly. Simply press this into your idler arm box, then drill & tap the holder for a Zerk fitting, making the bushing serviceable with a grease gun (the original was not!).

This fits chassis up to #112-25-75326.

If you have a 1972 Super and are not sure if you have an early or late one, the early Idler Arm Bushing has an OD of ~1.5" (38mm), and an ID of 1.023" (26mm). The Late Idler Arm Bushing has an OD of ~1.187" (30mm), and an ID of .710" (18mm).

Price: $44.95
