VW Type 2 Bay Suspension

Buy your Bay Window Suspension Parts Here

 The Volkswagen Bay Window (1968-1979) is legendary for many things, not least its longevity and ability to go where other vehicles fear to tread. Much of this is due to the Volkswagen Type 2 suspension system, which consists of a pair of hollow axle tubes, each housing a stack of flat metal bars to which the trailing arms are attached. Like a classic air-cooled Beetle, these Type 2 torsion bars are the main component of the VW Bay Window front suspension.

At either end of the tubes are stamped steel legs, or shock absorber towers, that provide the upper location point for the Bay Window shock absorbers, as well as a mounting for the four individual trailing arms, which support the stub axles by means of upper and lower VW Bay Window ball joints.

While the system is extremely durable, time, road and weather conditions and lack of maintenance can cause items to fail, which is why Heritage Parts Centre stock a wide range of replacement parts for the Volkswagen Bay Window suspension, from stock replacement Bay Window front axle beams to front axle beam adjuster kits, Bay Window ball joints, wheel bearing kits, Type 2 dropped spindles and anti-roll bars.

T2 Bay Shock Absorbers 

Whilst the Type 2 shock absorbers won’t control the ride height of your Bay Window they can transform how it travels down the road. If you want to lower or even slam your Bay Window you’ll need to fit shorter shocks, and if you are going higher, giving your bus a Swamper make over, then longer travel dampers will be the way to go. 

One main advantage of fitting T2 Dropped Spindles is the opportunity to use standard length shock absorbers. Helping to retain a degree of comfort, whilst lowering the vehicle closer to the tarmac. 

Minimise Body Roll in Your Type 2 Bay

The VW Type 2 was never designed to be a race car, and with a relatively high centre of gravity and a slab-sided profile, it needs all the help it can get to carry speed through corners without tipping over (or at least scaring the occupants inside).

Uprated T2 anti roll bars are stiffer than standard and help to reduce its tendency to tip in the turns. Fitting a rear anti roll bar, something Volkswagen didn’t do from the factory but can really help with improving driver confidence for all but the slowest of cruisers. 

Bay Window Rear Suspension

The VW Type 2 rear suspension is what is commonly referred to as IRS (independent rear suspension). It uses round torsion bars and spring plates in the same way as earlier swing axle set ups but has Bay Window CV joints at either end of the axle half shafts and a pair of diagonal trailing arms, which locate the rear hubs. 

What Type 2 Suspension Parts might I need?

The most common items that will need replacing are those which rotate all the tiem. T2 Bay CV joint kits, and CV gaiters, and Type 2 wheel bearings are prime examples. 

Naturally, we keep all these in stock, along with lots of smaller Bay Window suspension parts that you may need when you carry out the job.
