Spring Plate Cap, Swing Axle, Solid, Bug / Beetle / Karmann Ghia
Is your Bug or Ghia sagging on the rear end? Do you hear a knocking sound sometimes?
If so it may be time to replace your Spring plate Caps. They often corrode from the inside out, leading to the end of the torsion arm not being held securely in the rubber donut, which in turn leads to the collapse of the rubber. These are the standard replacement items in a black satin paint finish.
We recommend you replace the rubber donut with new or replacement urethane whenever replacing the spring plate caps.
