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!

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.
