VW Type 2 Bay Suspension

Buy your Bay Window suspension parts and spares 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 balljoints.

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 balljoints, wheel bearing kits, Type 2 dropped spindles and anti-roll bars.

Bay Window rear suspension
The VW Type 2 rear suspension is what’s 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 halfshafts and a pair of diagonal trailing arms, which locate the rear hubs. The most common items that will need replacing are VW Bay Window CV joint kits, stub axles, and Type 2 wheel bearings so 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.

We carry a wide range of Bay Window shock absorbers from stock replacement parts to performance items from KYB, EMPI and GAZ, including Bay Window coilover shocks.
