Type 3 Front Beams

This beam is a pressed steel unit, housing crossed torsion bars in an X configuration, to which the trailing arms are attached by splines. The trailing arms support a stub axle by means of a pair of ‘balljoints’, which - unlike the VW Beetle - are bolted into the arms. This makes them a little easier for the home mechanic to replace, as a hydraulic press isn't required.

Of course Heritage Parts Centre stock an extensive range of parts for Type 3 front suspension, including shock absorbers… plus of course the balljoints. Not to mention a great selection of performance and styling parts, including lowered shocks.
