    Hi guys

    I have done a search for any topics on suspension but couldnt find anything...

    Can anybody give me advice on lowering the suspension on my Kombi (76)?

    I am planning on getting some Torsion tube beam adjusters from Roy for this

    All the best

    Do you mean dropping it out of Kombi or lowering it?

    Can't help but I am sure someone will help. I am from opposite camp that keeps them high as we go camping.

    On a bay it is best if you fit adjusters to the front beam, quite an easy job if you can weld.
    You can get dropped spindles but I think the only ones you can get are made wider so it makes the track wider and your tyres might rub on the guards.
    To lower the rear you just move the spring plates on the torsion tubes same as a beetle, should take a couple of hours and you dont need any parts.
    Best to look on Volksworlds web site as I think they have tech articles on this.

    The Bentley and Clymer manuals will have instructions on adjusting the rear springplates. :)

    I was going to get some adjusters welded in but for another hundred or so $$ you can get an exchange beam with adjusters already welded in, you just swap beams.

    Both custom bugs and buses and indian automotive in penrith do this deal.
