Lowering the rear of a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia suspension
This video takes a more comprehensive look and demonstrates the lowering
and fine-tuning of the swing axle rear suspensions. Simply put, if your car
is either lowered or raised and you are not driving on Drop Plates or Raise
Plates then you are settling for an inferior and potentially dangerous
ride! Lower or raise the rear of both Swing Axle and IRS Volkswagens and
Buggies without changing the factory spring plate travel or torsion in the
system and achieve a superior ride! Atomwerk Drop/Raise Plates will restore
the factory "feel"! We did not seat-of-the-pants design our Drop Plates to
lower your vehicle, we ENGINEERED them so that your car will not lose its
ride quality after it has been lowered. Bottom line is that Drop Plates are
the only way to have a comfortable ride when your rear end is lowered. See
our tech page for greater understanding of this:
Lower your VW the right way!

1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my
wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I
know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was
installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is
