1) Are NEW (complete, ready-to-bolt-on) Front Axle Beams available for my
1969 VW Squareback/Variant, from some source? Approximate cost? Or am I
going to be relegated to "searching" for the best, minimally rust-free,
used, beam that I can find?
2) A VW bus owner, and (BTW) is a "passionate" VW bus owner, like us Type 3
guys, gave me a catalog from Mid America Motorworks (Effingham, IL).
www.mamotorworks.com They are a "newly-known-to-me", VW supplier of
(mostly) Bug, Super-Beetle, Ghia, & Bus parts. They seem to have a small
amount of Type 3 stuff. Do they sell GOOD quality parts? Their prices seem
a bit on the high side. ???
3) Are the upper ball joint arms (by themselves only) replaceable? It
seems that the ball joint on the right-side has excessive "play" in it.
Both top-to-bottom and right-to-left. Left-side is just OK (not great) but
OK. If I could find a good quality Front Axle Beam, I would buy it.
4) Do any other VW models or years, Front Axle Beams "fit" our Type 3 cars?
