  1. Can any one help , l want to raise the front of my t2 bay window to stock hieght .
    Unfortunately the bump stops have been cut off by one of the previous owners.
    It's on 15" wheels with low profile Tyres & bottoms out on the anti roll bar !.
    No negative remarks please regards why its been lowered as it wasn't my choice / preference just happened to buy it this way .
    Many thanks Martin.

    Depends how its been lowered.
    Cut and turned beam?
    Dropped spindles?
     
  3. What's the difference between stock and dropped spindles in size? If it's cut & turned beam can you tell buy if it has welding around the adjustment area? Sorry to be vague used to working on old bikes not old vw thanks Martin.

    I don't know the size difference in spindles.

    If it's cut and turn, it'll have adjusters welded to the beam that look like this:

  6. Don't think it's been altered on the beam , looks clean & original ! Could it have been lowered just by altering the torsion bars ? If that's not a silly question ?

    Adjusters effectively alter the torsion bars I think, so if there's no sign, I'd imagine its got dropped spindles on.
     
  8. Ok thanks for your help , I will ring heritage & asked them the size of the stock spindles & see if they match ? Many thanks for your help Martin.

  9. To identify what you’ve got, post some pics of the centre of the 2 torsion tubes forming the beam (upper and lower), and also a pic towards the inside of the front wheels showing where the beam arms attach to the spindles/hubs.

  10. Is the arb underneath the lower tube (factory location)? Quick fix would be to re-mount the arb on top of the lower arms instead of underneath - will work just the same and give you more ground clearance.
