Default Re: Lower the back of your bug

Weld it in were you want. If you mean to raise the rear suspension on the frame (to lower the body) If not channel the body over the frame. That would probably be the best thing to do.
Mine is on the pan. I'm just getting rid of the negative camber caused when lowering a VW by adjusting the torsion plates.
On a VW lowered with the torsion adjustment, you can also get rid of negative camber by raising the trailing arm front mounts, higher on the torsion tube.
The advantage of channeling or raising the whole rear suspension on the frame ( to lower the car), is that you retail original geometry & travel.
The disadvantages include more body Mods needed to clear the lowered suspension.
If I was building from scratch, I would channel the body..
