While we didn’t have to lower the rear of our 1971 Super Beetle, we wanted to give an idea of how the car will look before we pull it apart. Lowering the rear suspension on a Beetle does not require anything other than tools and time. While we had the suspension apart, we did replace some of the wear items (the spring plate bushings and the shocks) but this isn’t a requirement. Follow along and learn how simple a job it is to lower the rear of your VW.
