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!

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!
