87 944 complete suspension front rear in a 70 type 3? Any one have pics, info, tips Is it a swap worth attempting? Lot's of fabrication or pretty straight forward? Thanks!
I am willing to bet that it the same as putting it on a T1 since you can take all the brakes off a T3 and put them on a T1.
Check out Franklin's for the fronthttp://www.franklinsvwwerks.com/
Or look around for spacers that put the bearings in the right place.
On the back it seems you can go two ways. Swap the arms and everything from the 944 or swap the brakes, stub axel and everything into your orginal arms. But that only works if you get parts from the stamped steel 944 arms not the alloy ones.
And like always there is building custom parts.
Now I only sorta know this stuff for beetles so make sure and look into if this works on T3's too. [1 edits; Last edit by SportyBug at 00:14:34 Mon Feb 19 2007]
