Work great on the rear of my VW412, speaking of which (see the bridge I'am making :D ):

Porsche ClassicSport I (BBS made) 7x17 ET55 and 8,5x17 ET52 with 195/45(in the pic still 205/50) and 225/45 rear.
Front calipers are BMW 320, 48mm cups. Adapter plate for the off-set and stud-adaptment

Awesome! I love those wheels :shocked: :angry:

Wally, why not just add a bias valve to the rear line or a balance bar m/c's that would retain all you have achieved and allow you to dial in the correct bias?

That was my second thought Steve ;)
Its just that I have noticed that when fully loaded with family and luggage (i.e. dog) and traveling at speed, braking to a full stop does suffer, which is mainly due to the front brakes (they look just like the orginal cast iron ones, but are only one size bigger) with the non-vented disk.
Therefore I still hope to come up with a solution to mount a nice alu Brembo to the front. Problem there is the spindle, its different from a type 1 so a 944 adapter bearing is maybe not possible...but let me worry 'bout that for a while ;)

Wally,

Why not fit the 944 struts c/w discs, the early ones are a straight replacement and even have the speedo cable hole?

Not a straight replacement on a 412

Wally, they are the same bearings as BJ/SB. I'd like to come up with something if you're up for it? Probably could do a 996 bolt on kit....:)

Yes the wheel bearings are the same, but they are wider apart on a 412 than on a bug (any year).... I have the adapter parts to press in, but I am not sure the bearing houses would have enough material left in the 944 hub to reside in...

Lanner, if you could make me something, I would definately be up for it, spindle/hub wise or caster adjustment ;)
You know the top strut bearings are the same in my 412 as in my late 1303 beetle and I need the extra caster on both. So an adjustable caster top bearing plate is still on top of my list. Caster I have now is between 1 and 2 degrees and needs to to 6-8 or so for optimum straight line high speed stability. I already have the Topline caster+ sway-bar bushings, but its not enough. Mayby because of my M030 front spindles but I dunno.

Untill I have some top strut caster-adjustment parts, I don't dare go any faster than 120 mph or so....
The lowered 412 has the same problem. So two sets of these could make this all a happy world :rolleyes:

Well, you can't blame a guy for trying right? (I know you have other engagements ;) )

Thanks,
Walter

Wally,

No worries, I'm on the project. But I'm in the process of moving and then off for almost a month. So it'll be into the new year before I have anything concrete to show. Also, not sure if I can get that much adjustment out of them. Will have to get out the slide rule and figure it out :-P. Are your cars sleeping for the winter?

In the interim, I could probably come up with a static upper mount with spherical bearing. No adjustment, but fixed at a certain positive caster. Quick, dirty (and probably cheap). You can guinea pig them for me :)

If more movement is neccesary for them to work (increase caster by say at least 5 degrees or so), I would not mind filing out the upper strut openings in the body.

The 1303 is, as I always seem to come up with new plans that require engine and trans to be removed from the 03... but the 412 is my daily driver.

That would be a very good idea! I could do that easily in a weekend and have the car realigned with the extra caster afterwards.
Cool! if you could make that happen, pls do so. The details we can discuss by PM or mail ;)

Tnx in advance Lanner!
