OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

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).
