atomwerk@gmail.com Atomwerk Engineering WAS about  quality! We believed that quality  comes WAY before quantity! We  stuck to our guns to the end.

Note: Installing spring plates is a very dangerous task and should never be attempted by an amateur or without using the proper installation tools. If you are not a competent mechanic - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL!!!

Front Suspensions

The front suspension of the VW may be defined as a dual “trailing link”. This term describes the geometry, and therefore mechanical stability of its category. In short, the arms trail and articulate (and therefore the wheel) behind two pivot points. As with the rear end, the front end of the old air-cooled VWs is suspended by torsion bars, or more precisely; torsion leaves. As with most suspensions, the further that the trailing arms deviate from the factory angular position, the worse the ride becomes correspondingly. That is why it is always best to start with the spindles as the method of lowering or raising the car. Only after doing this should one focus on changing the control arm height, which can easily be done with an adjustable beam.


Make sure that you purchase matching components for beams that are either narrowed or widened. Narrowed beams are made so that you can fit wider tires, so that you can pull the wheels in for a special appearance, or so that you can compensate for the offset of Drop Spindles, whereas widened beams are for those who want to give their car a wider wheel stance for improved cornering and/or off road handling.
