T1 1966-79 Beetle / Ghia Ball Joint 4″ Classic Jawbreaker Beam
Titan Engineering T1 Ball Joint Beetle Beam 4" narrowed, installation is simple and easy with no body modifications. Each beam is built by robots in the UK and fettled to spec by hand. Limebug is the leading supplier of narrowed beams in the industry.
Each beam is produced from CDS (Cold Drawn Steel) Seamless tubing, then turned to length, each adjuster slot is then milled into the tubing along with the 4x grease points. Next we fit our custom Xero adjusters in place which give over 7.5" of adjustment travel. These adjusters are set in place in such a way as to achieve maximum drop and still give a great range of upper adjustment on nearly all configurations.
Next we laser cut 8mm steel into our beautifully designed end plates, these are then CNC press braked to form a dog leg which will clear all factory inner wings on your new 4" beam with no cutting, welding or drilling. Now we fit a turned 12×1.5mm solid threaded boss into the upper shock tower. Our shock towers are oversize in length to allow you to run your stock shocks for mild lowering and our gas charged shocks for the extra low Beetle / Ghia owners.
For the final step in the metal core assembly process, we precision load the components into the robot welding cell, at this point we fit our ramped base 'uprights' which have oversize holes for simple easy installation on all frame heads.
Now the core is built we install our uniquely designed grease cavity / Delrin bushings system. This configuration allows the use of Delrin bushes which have great low wearing properties and will not damage your trailing arms over time, they also do not squeak like Urethane. Finally this also allows you to run factory grease seals keeping your grease in the beam, where it should be.
So that's how the industry standard of narrowed front axle is made and some of the fantastic features it offers. All beams have the option to a powder coated finish, RHD / LHD, torsion leaves, track rods etc etc. Let Limebug cut out the guesswork and have a hassle free install.
We can now offer worldwide shipping on all Limebug beams. Typically holding over one hundred beam cores on the shelf we can supply the industry standard in quality and finish.
