JANAH BIANCA CA√ĎARES HERNANDEZ: hi chris what shocks should i put to my bug front is gas type and rear is liquid type any suggestion to soften my ride???

Scott Birmingham: Hi Chris, Im doing a frame off restore on a 64 ghia, Im wondering what type of motor you have put in before and who you have purchased from ( Scat..Mofoco) Its going to be a weekend driver but i would like a little get up and go..What and who you would recomend.. Thanks for your time bro

bug Den: any vids on front axle beam arm bushings type 1 , ,,,? maybe

jstottsvids: What year is this VW and is it a super beetle?

Roger Lavictoire: Legend once again. I knew what was left on the spindle shouldn't have been there at all but I could find very little info on the net. Then boom! A vid describing my exact problem. 20 mins later, one pipe wrench and a bit of Plus Gas and both sides are off and ready to take my new shocks/dampers. My front beam is almost ready to bolt back on. Cheers!

Sebastien DEWEVRE: Hello Chris, and many thanks from France !

Max Carter: how can I verify the age of my bug? I don't believe what the title indicates.

Max Carter: my front shocks are shocks, not struts. Were they changed?

67Loowit_scarab: 19 and 17mm ... Maybe vw engineers were thinking about the home mechanic with only one set of spanners.

Steve Eaton: Thanks for your video. All I needed was some visual reference, and swapped out all four shocks of my wife's 73 beetle.

spineblaZe: Does changing the front shocks change the alignment at all?

vza423: Once again....you nailed it.  Thank you Sir.

MrMrsregor: great videos! thanks for all your time and help, i find my self watching these even know i do not need to.. i bet they use 19mm and 17mm so that you can do it all with ONE set of wrenches and not need to have two sets for everything

Dalo: I recently installed front shocks on my 71 Beetle. I have 2 inch disc dropped spindles and I bought shocks for lowered beetle. It was super hard to compress the springs enough to mount these shocks. Are shorter shocks unnecessary for slightly lowered bugs? Also, the lower ball joints are rubbing on my wheels. What's the trick?

Chris Vallone: you may need to apply heat, and torch em up

Alex Sweeney: Hey I was just wondering if you had some suggestions on taking off the old shocks. Mine are damn near impossible to take off. I have used a ton of WD40 and it still wont pop loose.

Chris Vallone: yeah you can do it on the floor in your garage, but it is better on a lift. You just need a good set of jack stands to hold the car up while you take it off. Take the gas tank out too, it will help a bit more. Chris

Chris Vallone: yeah even easier

alhaurinrentals: Installation for VW Oval 1957 is the same?

Chris Vallone: Yeah I am here man!! A lowered bug, regardless will ride rough. You can get better shocks, but it will still ride a lil hard.
