Default Re: Lower the back of your bug

Look under the Tech bin (Your in it) under FONZY's "Learn how to flip IRS trailing arms, for that extra low stance".
It explains it all pretty well.

This is used in conjunction with readjusting your torsion tube several teeth.

Basically on a 69 & newer Bug you remove both trailing arms, Cut off the Shock mounts & Bump stops. Weld the opposite Shock & bumpstop mounts on what was the top side of the trailing ams. Remount them (now on opposite sides) and you'll regain camber.

Good Artical, Good photos, Good luck, Jimbo
