replace the Front suspension. Also check to see if anyone changed the Factory specifications{Cut & Weld}. The individual bars often break, putting abnormal strain on the remaining bars,which cannot hold the weight.

Thanks, that is a thought, but where can I get a 64 torsion bar front axle. To buy new is over $300.

I installed a retrofit kit {Shocks with Springs} on my 72' Ghia, but it had a negative effect on the lower Ball joints, which kept failing. If you can get the Link-Pin suspension, the retrofit kit may be a good option

    I just bought a vw 2006 beetle. I noticed it has started leaking oil. If you are standing in front of the vehicle the leak is on the left hand side. It is about middle of the left side.
