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. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically if we are able to get them within 30 days. Longer than 30 day 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.


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 opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. 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 many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if 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.

Fast Fab Super Beetle Strut Brace
Fast Fab Super Beetle Strut Brace


 
If you have a Super Beetle and want it to handle, YOU NEED THIS!

This product is a simple installation that simply that ties the front strut towers together (it triangulates them), giving your Super Beetle a tighter, more rigid front suspension by dramatically reducing chassis deflection. You will IMMEDIATELY notice quicker steering response, improved stability and more consistent alignment. Made in USA!

This strut tower brace is a new product for strengthening the Super Beetle's weak front end structure. Plasma cut steel side plates are fixture drilled for perfect fit.

The crossmember is 6061-T6 heavy wall aluminum for maximum strength. Spacer washers and all hardware are supplied to fit the bar to your chassis perfectly. We recommend that this bar be installed with our urethane lower control arm bushings for best results.

If your car is suffering from the "Super Beetle Shimmy", make sure that the suspension is repaired properly BEFORE installing this item. We DO NOT make any claims that this device will stop your shimmies on its own merit. However, it will add a feeling of stability and quietness over rough roads and turns that you can feel!

5 of 5 Fast Fab Super Beetle Strut Brace June 8, 2013
Reviewer: Paul Pavlou from Maroubra, NSW Australia  
Wow! It’s easy and quick to install. One of the cheapest and best suspension upgrades for a 1600L Beetle for what is little money. Makes steering sharper, reduces flex in the front end and the difference is subtle but dramatic in ride improvement.
Strongly recommended if you have a stiff front end and gas shocks on the rear as I do.
