    1” Narrowed and 3” dropped IRS control arms have been a fun project. Ready for final fitting and welding on the bearing housings.

    Should be a large supply of those batteries because nobody is buying those fucking abomination Mustang Mach E’s!

     

    Nevermind the fact that all of 2022 production is sold out 😂

    Franz’s work on this thing is insane. I’m certain this is going to be the cleanest EV swapped VW ever.

    Thanks fellas, the IRS arms have been a process. Mostly due to the clearance provided by the 65 swing axle pan (shocktowers/bodymount).

    Yeah thinking about shocks now. Spent yesterday fitting the upper gussets better and fully welding + double pass welded some of the larger joints.

    Shortened lower shock mounts to get more ground clearance. I set the upper eyelet as high as possible(bottom of the luggage shelf).

    48” backing plate to backing plate.

    13 5/8” with 3” spacers under the pan. It would bottom out with 21 1/4” diameter tires…. We’ll probably run more like a 25” tire with 4” under the pan at ride height.
