How to lower a swing axle VW with DropPlates, similar to drop spindles part 2.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 2 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.
My good customer Sean from Hawaii says that his ride is the best it has
ever been. You can find this vehicle and my name mentioned in the
center-spread of this the latest issue (March 2012) of Hot VWs. If you want
to know what other people think about Atomwerk Drop Plates then pick up an
issue and open it to the middle!

Featured in the July 2010 issue of eurotuner magazine, this air-cooled VW
Buggy is the personal project of Derek Jenkins. He was formerly the Chief
US Designer for VW but has since moved to Mazda. His buggy is an awesome
mix of traditional air-cooled style with modern materials and aesthetics.
This is possibly the best buggy we've ever seen, so don't miss the full
feature in eurotuner magazine (on sale 15 June 2010) and at eurotuner.com
