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!
