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!

vintage! The Karmann Ghia | drive it!
It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most
beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small
drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first
Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle
engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still,
when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough
to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's
close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this
classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this
stylish milestone of automotive history.
