NOTICE

Supply of many sought after parts is limited. Covid ripple-effect economic disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

MAXX STRUT Adjustable Lowering Strut Kit, 1971-73 1/2 (3-bolt Struts), PAIR
MAXX STRUT Adjustable Lowering Strut Kit, 1971-73 1/2 (3-bolt Struts), Pair


 
MAXX STRUT Adjustable Lowering Strut Kit, 1971-73 1/2 (3-bolt Struts), Pair is the highest quality and most flexible lowering system for VW Super Beetles! This kit will lower the front of your Super Beetle from 2-5" depending on it's adjustment.

This new coil-over design with small 75mm spring gives maximum wheel and tire clearance for larger 16, 17, and 18 inch wheels. Wheels must have a minimum 5 1/2 inch back spacing for best results. Supplied with adjustable ride height housings, gas shock inserts, springs, billet aluminum spring holders, red street sport springs, and closing nut. As an additional benefit, these have a significantly reduced weight of the new spring and components, which knowledgeable VW enthusiasts know results in less un-sprung weight. Less un-sprung weight means better ride, and better handling!

You do re-use your original top bearing mounts.

Your installation will require careful planning, as the kit will only work with rims with 5 1/2 to 6 inch back spacing (approximately 50 to 55mm offset). Longer wheel studs and wheel spacers will probably be necessary.

Note that the 80lb/in springs are quite stiff, they definitely put your ride into the "Sport" category! We recommend the red springs for most street use!
