Struds on 72 VW Super Beetle
Hello there, I bought a 72 Super Beetle and haven't had any issues until the other day, luckily I had just pulled into our long driveway when the Strut on the right side came completely undone, my tire cranked hard to the right. It took us hours to compress the spring and get the strut back into place. After ward we realized that it would just happened again in time. These are neither the right struts and / or the right bolts that hold the Struts up. They seem to short for the bug, whoever put them in, didn't' know what they were doing. I'm lucky nothing worse happened to me while driving. What Struts do you recommend for the Beetle? Is there a certain kind, length, etc???? Not looking forward to compressing these springs again (any suggestions on faster, easier completion is appreciated. Please help, I can't wait to get back onto the road. Thanks a bunch.
ent a spring compression tool from your local auto parts store. The guides call for a replacement front Strut - Monroe part #73934 or KYB #363012. replace the new ones in pairs.
