Hello!
I'm trying to install adjustable spring plates on my body-off 62 baja project. The plates didn't come with directions, and I can't find much info on my searches. My question is, Are the stock torsion bar cover plates used with these? And is there any tips anyone can offer that's done this before? This is a street legal baja with s/a trans... Thanks again! I've been gettin through this project with a lot of help from this site. I'm a newbie to the VW scene for about 9 months now and have definately benefited from your expertise! (spent a grip of $$ too! lol)

The simple answer is that depends. There are a few different types of covers, some with holes and some without holes. So here's what you've gotta ask yourself, "Dose it look like it will work?" If not then go buy some new covers.

I have not seen the set you have, but I think you need a spacer for the cover. I'm not sure how thick the adjustable spring plate is. Pictures are always worth 10,000 words Smile

Aye laddie! Wink AZBAJA's right, I believe the adjustable spring plates are thicker too.

Install them with out the torshion bar first. this will let you move them up and down etc. to find the range of motion. if the torshion plate hits the spring plate wyou will need to install a spacer or some washers or somthing like that under the cover. You will also need to get longer bolts. Make sure you get good quality grade 8 bolts.
