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!

MAXX STRUT Adjustable Lowering Strut Kit, 1973 1/2-79 (2-bolt Struts), PAIR
MAXX STRUT Adjustable Lowering Strut Kit, 1973 1/2-79 (2-bolt Struts), Pair


 
MAXX STRUT Adjustable Lowering Strut Kit, 1973 1/2-79 (2-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 up to 3" 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!
