NOTICE

Many sought after parts are backordered these days. Supply-chain 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.

1" Lowered Tapered Super Beetle Strut Springs (Sport Springs), PAIR, 87-0308
1" Lowered Tapered Super Beetle Strut Springs (Sport Springs), Pair, 87-0308


 

1" Lowered Tapered Super Beetle Strut Springs (Sport Springs), Pair, 87-0308 are a huge improvement compared to anything else! Tapered design gives more clearance for wider wheels and tires. Progressive spring rate prevents bottoming, while actually providing a slight lowering too!

When you lower a VW Superbeetle, your available wheel travel is reduced by the amount you lowered it. If you use the stock spring, you WILL bottom out. These stiffer springs prevent that and while providing a smooth ride, AND give more tire clearance too! These are a HUGE improvement over stock VW Superbeetle springs.

These are designed to be interchangeable with your stock Super Beetle springs, but with some performance enhancements.

First, there should be a slight lowering effect on the front end ride height. The exact amount of lowering will depend on the condition of your old springs, but normally you will see ~3/4 - 1" of lowering, but even up to 1 1/2" on heavier convertibles.

Note the tapered design which gives extra clearance for wider wheels and tires, while still fitting the stock spring holders! The springs give more usable wheel travel than the stock springs, by having the non-functional progression of the stock spring removed, and then increasing the spring rate about 10% over the stock spring.

This spring is very streetable, and we actually feel this is the spring the cars should have come with when they were new!
