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!!!

How can I tell what kind of suspension I have?

You break it, we’ll replace it no questions asked! Swing Axle Drop Plates, Deluxe Assembled set

Swing Axle Deluxe Assembled Sets

Stop wasting your horsepower in wheel hop and put your power to the road! Are you pushing more power AND looking for a quick reacting suspension? Then our Deluxe Assembled Sets are the solution for you. These sets eliminate bushings entirely and replace them with steel needle bearings. These sets are part of our Racing Spring Plate heritage, with the addition of the needle bearings, CNC machined aluminum housings, and machined dust covers to cleanly cap off the ends.

Bring hardcore Porsche performance to your VW! No horsepower will be wasted in vibrations and pointlessly spinning your wheels. Without wheel hop your car will have no choice but to “hook up” and put the power to the road. Stop wasting your time and money reinforcing the strong points in your VW and get right to the issue and eliminated the squishy bushings! The sealed needle bearings are made of hardened steel that cannot not deflect and they retain grease for superior lubrication, durability, and overall performance! This brings precision and quicker reactivity to your suspension.

This setup is far superior to plastic bushings, including urethane and Delrin, which have been observed to deflect during testing, as well as breakdown over time. Don’t be fooled by the hype - steel rolling element bearings is superior to polymers across the board; they are stiffer, they free up your suspension to react better to the road, and they far outlast bushings.

The Spline Stubs are 2.0" in diameter and are made from 4340 chromoly steel. Then they are machine finished and precision ground and then welded to spring plates. The spring plates are 1/4" thick, laser-cut, grade 50 tool steel, which makes them about as tough as it comes. This is about the strongest material one can find to withstand constant shock, flexing and absorbing without losing shape as a spring plates should. These Drop/Raise Plates come standard with a matte black, silver, or translucent red powder coat finish (other colors $40 extra), which is far more durable and beautiful than the industry-standard cheap zinc coatings that you will find on most suspension components. They also come with their own laser-cut brushed stainless steel badges that set them apart from anything else in the world! They come in the following increments:

Swing Axle:

Stock Height

1.2” Drop

2.4” Drop

3.6” Drop

1.2” Raise

2.4” Raise

3.6” Raise

Keep in mind when making your selection that each spring plate has a variance of an inch in either direction. For example if you wanted to drop your VW 3.25” then you should purchase the 3.6” Drop Plates and then index them on your VW so that it sits 3.25”.
