jmd, I'm after few things really.

1. I'm looking for more adjustability out of the back end than I'm getting from the stock porche spring plates. It's also a pain to fine tune with the eccentric adjustment bolts.

2. I want to cut down on the rear end slop now that I'm playing with the much higher cornering loads that slicks produce. These plates and delrin pivot bushings should help with that.

3. I like giving back to the community where I can and getting suspension parts from members puts money into GLer hands.


If you aren't making a time attack car the stock parts are great. Even for intermediate track use on street tires they will hold up just fine. I'm at the stage now where I'm trying to go from the top 8% to the top 5% and I need reliability and repeatability.

Thought I'd put an update here and put up Alex's hard work. I finally had a chance to open the box and check out the parts. They are very robust and absolutely beautiful!

Humble what size bar u running in the back.

I was going to use some 944 but with the Gwd rear sway bar mounts and our 901 front traverse it is not a good fit. The 944 seem shorter then the beetle ones by an inch or so. If I have to use the 944 I need custom endlinks at about 5 inches or so.

Thinking the beetle may be a better fit but can I trouble u to measure the short length so I can compare.

Rear IRS conversion bits look really nice need to check the price.

Alex - is that price for your Beetle to 944 alu arms? With all the hardware? If so, let's talk about me getting one of those sets.
thanks.

I can still offer one or two sets less than 800€ before May, but at price 750€, due to a risen cost of aluminum and actual machining time.

As for timetable, usually i'll get the aluminum in 1,5-2 weeks, machining takes time 2-3 weeks. Bolts and uniball joints i'll get at few days.
