The EvaResto Premium Type 3 Front-End Air Suspension kit. Designed to give you everything you need for full ground laying Air Suspension, with unmatched quality and value for money.
This kit contains a Type 1 conversion beam, so must be used with the necessary Type 1 parts required for installation. Parts needed are as follows: Trailing arms, Spindles, brake kit (in some cases, your Type 3 callipers can be re-used) and hardware. We can supply these if wanted, to make a full conversion package.
Want real lows and real driveability? Air is the way to go, and EVA offers only the highest quality and best performing kits on the market. The ultimate in aircooled air suspension technology.
A huge upgrade over just bolt-on air shocks, this full conversion kit is designed from scratch to give killer lows, awesome range, great performance and great driveability.
So, what makes our premium system? Custom built-for-specification Type 1 Conversion Air Suspension Beam in Stock width, 2" & 4" Narrowed, Torsion bar delete (freeroll) Rods, our excellent AirSleeve Shocks, Correct length steering rods and long travel ball joints as standard.
Our Beams are hugely popular and street-proven on some of the best looking cars in the Aircooled scene. The beam featured in this kit is very much the same, but designed to work with our AirSleeve Shocks in perfect harmony. When coupled with the long travel joints, framehead on floor action is easily obtainable with the right wheel and tyre setup. Our own invention Raise-Tube Castor-corrected Type 1 conversion beam makes this possible and corrects the geometry of your new setup, meaning no hang ups on the ball joints before your car is allowed to sit down where it should. Real lows require the pro’s!
Lifting is easy, and our Bag Shocks make easy work of the task in hand, no matter how much you're carrying under the bonnet. 5" of range from fully compressed to extended makes for more clearance than you'll ever need for the lowest and most vulnerable part of the car - the Framehead and Floorpans.
Custom steering gear helps give full steering angle and lock, with no clearance issues or compromise. A full lock-to-lock turning circle can still be achieved.
Requires 2.5" drop spindles to give maximum lows. These can be added in the drop-down box menu, as most people already have them on their cars before fitting air, they're not specified in the 'stock' kit :).
Kit as standard contains:
Assembled beam with bushings, centre core and grease hardware, Eva AirSleeve Shocks with installed urethane bushes, 1/4" PTC fittings, FreeRoll rods, Long Travel Ball Joints, Steering rods, Steering Extender, Steering Damper Mount, Steering box clamp/lock stop kit, Grease seals set, Fixing kit.
Available from us are 2x Shock Tower Height' options for Type 3 front air ride.
No Body Mods Towers - These are as it states, a no body cutting required solution. A great option for those who's classic German steel is sacred! This Setup will give a full dropped height, like the other ‘full length’ tower option, if the supplied weld-on lower shock mount relocators are used. If not, expect a reduction in drop of 1/2-1”.
Full Length Towers (Tub Required) - These are the same length towers which we fit to our Beetle Air Ride beams, and require a slight cut into the inner wing of the car for fitment. If you're tubbing your Type 3 anyway (like we always do for anything over a 15x4.5” wheel and super skinny tyre), then it's no problem. Full drop and lift, with no weld-on lower relocator required.
Now available as an upgrade to the standard supplied Zenith AirSleeve front shocks (pictured) are EvaResto/Spax ‘Performance+’ Package shocks. The same lift pressure and ride quality as the regular supplied shocks, only with 30-click stiffness/rebound adjustment all round. Enabling you to precisely dial in the suspension feel and response. An ideal choice for the performance minded classic vw builder, and a perfect accompaniment to a high capacity engine setup! Choose the upgrade from the 'Air Suspension Hardware/Chassis Parts' category, and purchase it alongside this kit for the upgrade to take effect.
