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 temporary.





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: http://www.atomwerk.org/suspension_tech.html Lower your VW the right way!
