Buy your VW Karmann Ghia rear suspension parts here!

As one of Europes biggest air-cooled parts suppliers Heritage Parts Centre stock a wide range of parts for all types of Ghia Rear Suspension, from gaskets and boots to shocks and anti-roll ‘z’ bars. To browse or buy the parts you need just follow the links, or read on for further information on the different types of VW Ghia suspension.

Types of VW Ghia Rear Suspension

There are two different kinds of rear suspension fitted to the Karmann Ghia: the standard ‘swing axle’ assembly, that uses rigid axles, and the ‘IRS’ type – fitted only to certain models. Below is a brief breakdown of the different types of Volkswagen Karmann Ghia rear suspension:

Swing Axle – used on most standard models

The swing axle assembly consists of a pair of rigid axles that pivot from the gearbox. If your axles only have rubber boots on the ends of the axles that join the gearbox (and not at the hub ends), then you have a swing axle model.

Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) – used on 1302/03 & Semi-Auto

IRS is a more advanced type of Volkswagen Karmann Ghia suspension that features CV (constant velocity) joints both next to the gearbox and also at the hub end of the axles. These were only used on models from 1968 onwards. If your axles have rubber boots on both ends of axles (next to the gearbox and at the hubs), then you have an IRS model.

Of course Heritage Parts Centre stock an extensive range of parts for both types of VW Ghia rear suspension, including axle and CV boots, hub seal kits and bump stops. Plus a great selection of performance and styling parts, including adjustable springplates and uprated shocks.
