Default Re: Rear swing axle air suspension

Ron - I can appreciate that you have been here for awhile and that you are making progress on your project (does look good btw). I agree with comment above that it is annoying when someone pops in - demands an answer right now - and then pops out.

I put you in that category. If you are not in that category - then by all means, stick around - we need more assholes!



Those that have gotten to know me on this forum do know that I have only gone after two people on here that definitely deserved it.

I know that I (and many others) read comments like this:

Hey, I am building X and have this done so far (show pictures). I am thinking about doing Y to it and have seen example 1, example 2 and example 3. I am wanting to combine example 2 and 3 to accomplish Y. Am I overlooking something that would prevent this?

This is read an honest question from someone working on something himself and not asking anyone to hold his dick for him. He has demonstrated that he has researched and is also committed to doing a project.


Hey, can someone give me a templete on how to build a volksrod? Thanks.


This is read differently. This usually gets people fucked with. This is usually someone that posts one or two times and then is gone. They possible started screwing up a decent VW and end up trying to sell it on the Samba for $6,000 as a volksrod project. Then they buy a prius.


So - I do apologize for jumping in feet first. I hope you do understand and don't harbor a grudge.

A few things I found today that you may have already seen:

from the samba:

This one has a unique Type III set up plus some good discussion.

http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/vie...ide+suspension


This one has a lot of talk about different shock lengths (something you mentioned) as well as a lot of discussion and links to different builds and different components.

And before anyone gets in my Wheaties for the Prius comment - . I do know that some of you are still cool despite rockin' a Prius - but at some point you have to stop telling everyone that it is your wife's car!
