    Default Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP)

    Lets all contribute pics and memories to this timeless classic that has faithfully served generations. It is my 1st car memory and my dad who is a Beetle enthusiast at one time had a total of 4 beetles in our garage Here's a little history of this miraculous German wonder: 'The history of the Beetle really goes back to pre 2nd world war Germany when Ferdinand Porsche had a vision of a mass produced vehicle that was affordable to the average German, an idea that was shared with the young Adolf Hitler who himself could not drive, but was a car fanatic. Hitler was apparently influenced by the achievements of Henry Ford and his production lines - reading Ford's biography while in prison during 1923. Porsche had previously worked on some other small cars that used many elements later to be included in the Beetle. The Type 32 prototype NSU of 1934 was an air-cooled rear engined four cylinder horizontally opposed powered car that used torsion bar suspension and featured beetle-like styling.' --- source - Google.co.uk lets keep the posts rolling - add pics of bugs you've owned or own! I'll add my dad's bug family pics as well ... I guess he fell in love with this oddly shaped car after he drove it down to Pakistan from Germany!!!! .. stories of that wonderous journey keep us entertained whenever our family gets together

    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    ok
    while serching about the quality of monroe i found this
    TheSamba.com :: View topic - Monroe Air Shocks

    i know u might be interested in it
    this guy is using monroe air shocks in bug and the setup he used is dead simple and cheap

    he hooked a 10$ bicycle air pump with both front shocks using a tvalve.when he wants to raise the height he switches the pump on so the shocks extend.
    and when ever he wants to slam it he opens the valve pressure is relased hence ride slams.
    no electronics
    no expensive air ride kits

    Bl**dy useless people. I have had nothing but bad experiences with them on all three occasions I ordered from them. Their stuff is mostly Chinese cr@p and their mail order is worse.

    This is pretty neat if it works fine. Would definitely get myself a pair soon. Don't think it would be available locally?
    But the question is, will it do a burnout?

    use same technique on the rear. Although you can adjust the splines on the rear suspension.

    I read the whole thread and its not so simple. Even if the shocks and pump work fine, the ball joints have a limit.

    Also, i'd appreciate if someone could explain how the ride height can go so low with adjusting the shocks only? If my understanding is correct, the leaf springs in the beam also have a role in keeping the car suspended.

    If i install smaller shocks on the front, would i achieve a drop?
    But the question is, will it do a burnout?

    same technique can not be used at the back since there is alot weight at the back a normal pump can not create enough pressure to raise it

    here they wrote when a guy asked if he did not use droped spidals

    "It should not make any differance as such. However you will have to run much shorter shocks if you want to lower your car as much as ours. This would also limit the amount of lift you would get as the smaller shocks wil not have the same extension as longer shocks. "

    So does it mean that the THING is now "on road"? How much is he asking for it in its current condition?
