MK-1 Suspension

Mark 1 Front Suspension

Here's the suspension, dropped out from under the car
(it's held in with only 13 bolts and 2 brake-line fittings)

And, here it is completely disassembled, with new bushings and springs, back fresh from the powder-coaters

Of the 41 parts I count in this picture, a grand total of 10 remain in the car: main cross member (1), steering link and ends (3), spring retaining plates (2), lower shock mounts (2), and lower-A-arm fulcrum shafts (2) (you can see one, it's silver up along-side the anti-sway-bar). The sway bar and associated mounts and linkage needed to be replaced with an S-type version to clear the oil sump on the new 4.2L engine. Everything from the A-arms out was replaced during the conversion to wire wheels.


Please help support the move to the new site, and DONATE what you can.
A big Thank You to those who have donated already!
