1966-1977 Torsion Spring Front Ball Joint Axle Beam Standard Width - OEM Number(s) (131-411-107-A)

Get your Beetle or Karmann Ghia back on the road with our 1966-1977 Stock Width Standard Front Ball Joint Torsion Spring. This torsion spring consists of 6 leaves that fits the upper or lower position and is a direct replacement for the factory springs. It is recommended to replace both upper and lower when replacing your springs. If one spring is weak, it will quickly wear out the stronger one.

This spring has 6 layers of leaves with 10 leaves in total. The top leaf and bottom leaf are actually two narrower pieces, with the center 4 leaves being full width. Each individual spring set has three correct drilled detents 18 inches apart (center to center) to accept securing grub screw lock.

The torsion springs are designed to hold the front end of your VW up off of the ground. Each spring is held in the front axle beam and the trailing arms attach to them. As the trailing arms travel up and down, the springs inside the axle beam twist to allow the suspension to move and twist or "spring" back into place.

Installation Note: Make sure to adequate grease spring before inserting in axle tube.
