Bus 1955-1967 Rear Suspension Parts and Spares

Heritage Parts Centre are the leading suppliers of genuine VW parts and accessories including VW Camper suspension parts 1955-67. We supply complete front beams as well as individual components all of which are available online! Simply click the links above.

Straight Axle Conversion Kit

With our straight axle conversion kits, those troublesome VW Bus reduction boxes can be removed. This is the least expensive way to lower your VW Bus rear suspension 3 1/2 to 4 inches (short travel shocks required) and take advantage of the higher gearing of a Beetle or Type 3. Kits include special length axle tubes, new gold anodized spring plates (not used, reworked stock spring plates that some competitors supply), gearbox gasket set, rear axle seal kits, brake cable extension tubes and instructions to complete the conversion. This is not a complete kit and will require other items depending on the year of your bus. You can source these parts used or we can supply most new, please call for information.

IRS Conversion Kit

This Kit will convert your VW Camper rear suspension 1955-67 to beetle based independent rear suspension (IRS) for a superior ride and handling and will lower your VW bus suspension about 3 1/3 to 4 inches (short travel shocks required). The kit includes, new special length “floating” CV axles, special IRS control arm mounting clamps with appropriate hardware, new gold anodized special length spring plates, gearbox nose cone gasket, brake cable extension tubes and installation instructions to complete the conversion. Note this is not a complete kit and will require other items available either new or used depending on the year of your bus. These include Beetle/Type 3 IRS gearbox, A arms, CV joints and rear brakes.
