Beam adjustment

Postby OKMOOSE » Sat May 13, 2017 8:52 pm

I have this beam installed on my 66 beetle. I have never had a beam like this with two adjusters. How do I adjust this style? How do I adjust preload?

See the stud sticking out of the adjuster? Think of that as connected to your trailing arms. Point it down, wheels go up. Point it up, wheels go down.

Don't worry about preload.

Should they be adjusted the same on top and bottom?

I adjust the same top and bottom. For a very small height adjustment you could adjust only one.

That's an awesome explanation Zach!
