Hell yeah.

I notched the stock plates, and re-indexed 2 outer splines. Also notice elongated axle mounting holes. The problem with lowering a swing axle car is that the axle toes-in as the car goes down. It makes for some funny rear steering. You can buy aftermarket spring plates to bolt on these days... But I'm not about buying everything.
Image

Axle boots, axle seals, brake hoses, wheel cylinder, shoes, shocks, and a good cleaning.

The engine runs great too! I simple/green'd and power washed on Friday. New hoses, fuel pump, spark plugs, oil change, torqued heads, and valve adjustment.
Image

I drove it out of the shop thinking the E-brake would work, but It didn't, and I ran into the vanagon's traler hitch. #-o

I'm pretty stoked to see Franz build a bug again.

I have never even met Franz (or any of the recent KCW guys for that matter), but whenever I see Franz post or hear his name at Andy's, this is the mental picture that pops up in my head.

Image

Looking forward to seeing what this build looks like in the end. Low in the front with 205/70's in the back. Gonna be sweet.

Yep, its going to look a lot like that car. Dirt nasty low. The biggest rear tire, and smallest front tire. I stayed late last night and cut another wheel.

Are you mounting deep 6's? On adapters?
