ok, that baja is a full out race car, which one not be street legal and costs upwards of 25k?
suspension-irs or less desirable, swingaxle
front, link pin, or less desirable ball joint
NO SUPERS!!
any of the above suspensions will work, but some are tougher.

IRS is good for desert.
Swing axle is better for mud and forest mobbing.

Linkpin is more stronger. but its not that big of a deal. BJ is just fine for now.

After I got mine, a 68 bug that i am going to turn into a baja. I found out that that is one of the transitional years that sucks.

early models have good front end, bad rear end(swing axle).
transitional models have bad front end(ball joint), bad rear end(swingaxle).
later models have bad front end(ball joint), good rear end(IRS)


I only say good and bad as what people usually prefer. I will be happy once i'm on the road. good or bad.


Good Luck in your search

Id rather have a 65 or older. No emissions, and I think its 10x cooler to say you own a 1966 vw then a 1975..

Ive heard its easyier to go SA to IRS then BJ to LP!
