T1 1950-79 Beetle / Ghia Rear IRS Air Ride Kit (Bolt on)

The Ultimate Aircooled VW Bolt on Air ride system, the industry leading T1 Beetle / Ghia Air Suspension Option

Looking to lower you Aircooled Volkswagen the right way with air suspension. Look no further. 

Limebug is the only Aircooled VW specialist offering fully bolt on, true air systems (this means we do not utilise any of the original torsion bar system, and give you the full, maximum travel available).


The Limebug rear air ride kit is the only air system that is fully bolt on with almost no compromises. You do not need to remove the body from the chassis, nor drill or cut anything. This kit will bolt straight on to any completely stock VW Beetle / Ghia.

All you need to know to get started is the following, you will need to be able to remove your engine/ gearbox and will have to remove the heat exchangers from your engine and replace with J-Tubes and then in some cases move your rear brake lines. That's it!

Want to know the travel, the rear kit is restricted only by the spring plates (which we offer as an optional extra on here). These dog leg around the chassis stops giving you even more lows and the second thing is the compressed shock length which for the rear kits we provide as standard at 255mm compressed.

VW Beetle Rear Air Ride Kit - Fitting / Installation Video Guide (Vehicle in video is 1966, This is swing axle model, however principle of fitting follows the same lines, only thing to note is that the airbags must be fitted to the upper cradle when it goes in as access is limited once installed)

Limebug's British 'Titan Engineering' department have been developing the most functional, innovative and beautiful parts in the scene to date. We have just introduced our Bug & Bus air ride ranges. Each kit is designed by certified and accredited engineers here at Limebug, before being tested by us personally to insure ease of fitment and function.

These air systems come with our online video tutorial for installation and operation, as well as a manual and guide to installation. Our video includes an explanation of upgrades, year differences. Neat tricks to look out for along the way, and other great ways to give you VW the look you've dreamt of without the nightmares.

Optional Extras

 - 2" Dropped Air Plates: These plates will increase the amount of drop you can achieve and resolve toeing in issues at low running heights. They also have recently recieved an update which now means they run a shorter bore tube stopping rubbing on the outer torsion cover and use 2" Inner Diameter bushes making them overall much stiffer and give better feel to the rear end.
