Dropped Spindles, Bus / Camper 73-79, can be used on 68-72, Pair **Backorder Status**
Dropped spindles are the quickest and easiest way to lower the front of your Bay Window Bus.
The spindles replace the original front spindles, and drop the ride height by 60mm, which is 2-3/8 in old money.
One of the major benefits, is that you can keep using standard height front shock absorbers, and the vehicle retains full suspension travel ... hence ride quality is perfect.These spindles are complete new manufactured spindles, they are not made from two sets of existing spindles welded together.
They are designed to fit to your Bus with no modifications whatsoever, you don't flipped ball joints .... the spindles fit in exactly the same way as your original spindles, and the ball joints will have the normal amount of travel.
Can be combined with an adjustable axle, or axle adjusters if you want to drop the front more, or fine tune the ride height.
The spindles do increase the wheel track by 10mm per wheel, so you will need to include this in your calculations / wheel and tyre choice.
Also note, as per Beetle dropped spindles, these Bus dropped spindles are designed to be used without the disc backing plates.
Designed to fit straight onto 73-79 vehicles, but they can also be used on an early bay 68-72 if you use 73-79 discs and calipers.
If your vehicle originally had drum brakes, we would also recommend fitting a new master cylinder.
Compatible with 14inch steel, and all alloy wheels.
