Our kit bolts on to your chassis, replacing the beam, steering box and all associated linkages.

Comes complete to the spindles and includes all the mounting plates, wishbones, rack and pinion steering, column support brackets, bevel box, universal jointed link to rack and a few bolts.

All the wear parts are sourced from Volkswagens parts bin, so that spares should be readily available for many years to come. The wishbone bushes are an up rated Ford item which should also be available in the future.

The ride quality, steering sharpness and lightness are all outstanding! It blows my mind whenever I drive ours, it is so different to what was there before! The ride quality is the same at whatever height you choose! You are more than welcome to test our Bus.

Speaking of which, we attended Vanwest in Weston Super Mare in May. A little round trip of 420 miles towing a trailer full of kit!

NOTE: we did not trailer our Bus to the Show and try to sell products we don’t use.

It is adjustable for height using two methods. The first is a coarse adjustment on the 4 bolt holes. This give 3”, 4”, 5”, and 6” drop. Then there is approx. 1.5” on the coilover which makes a possible total of 7.5”! Fine adjustment can then be carried out using the coilover.

Stiffness is adjusted as our other coilovers using the knob at the bottom.

Camber is adjusted using the original camber nut we are all used to.

Caster is adjusted using shims to move the relative positions of the top and bottom wishbones. If it’s good enough for Lotus it’s good enough for me!

Toe is adjusted using the track rods as normal.

Using the coarse adjustment allows the wishbones to be kept at their optimum angles over a wider range of heights.

The track is 40mm narrower than a Bay and 24mm narrower than the Split, that was done so that by the time our adaptors are fitted if you want wide 5 wheels the track would be stock on a Split.

No narrower options are available as the wishbones would be too short to give good geometry control.

We use modified late Bay spindles so that disc brakes are available to all at reasonable cost. Upgrades can still be used, from mild to wild as well as the wide variety of wheel and tyre combinations that are in use today. However, neither of the early steel wheels are suitable (14" or 15"). They do not have the clearance on the inside of the rim due the large step there.

Brake servo. The original Bay window can be reused if it was fitted originally. Otherwise we do not recomend fitting them. On the Split Screen Bus there is no real room an many cables are in the wrong place to fit one easily. Remote servos are availble if you feel you really need one.

The difference in price is because we supply a complete new column for the Split Screen Bus, and no there is no horn wire available, but after market remote horn operators are available if you want to keep the horn push on the steering wheel.

Hope that’s all good for you and look forward to speaking to you soon.

Need it fitting, get it fitted right! We can do this, ask for details and prices.
