How to lower a swing axle VW with DropPlates, similar to drop spindles part 4.wmv
Please see the latest and most comprehensive installation video:
This video demonstrates the proper way to lower an air-cooled VW and shows
how easy it can be to get your ride to drive smoothly even though the
vehicle is lowered. You can do it the right way! It is part 4 in a 4-part
series. The vehicle in focus is a swing-axle Volkswagen that has the short
torsion bars, but soon the racing spring-plates (DropPlates and
RaisePlates) will be available for all air-cooled models.
For those interested in adjusting the camber of a swing axle Volkswagen
please check out the animation of the world's first adjustable camber unit:
1966 VW Beetle - Body Removal - One Person - Remove Body Chassis Bug - (2x Speed)
FOR SALE (July 2, 2013): SOLD
Here's a short video showing the removal of my VW Beetle body from it's
chassis. This is the first time I've attempted this solo. In the past,
I've done it with the help of friends with each of us on a corner of the
car. All things considered, it went pretty well. =) Hopefully someone
will learn from my mistakes. The sawhorses are very similar to the ones
you'll see in the BugMe videos.

Brief video showing how to narrow a link-pin style front beam from a
Volkswagen beetle made from 1949 to 1967-68. The video shows plating the
shock towers to get more clearance then removal of 2 inches from the beam
width. The movie finishes up with shortening the torsion bars and
reassembly ready for swapping into my beetle in the next video.
