Im fairly new to the baja scene, was a mechanic for 15 years before a career change. Anyway, I'm building a baja from the ground up. Started with a 70. I changed the frame head to a link pin and want to go with a coil over front suspension. Going to use Fox coil over shocks but I don't know what size springs to use. Same question for the rear, going with the coil over conversion and don't know what size (poundage) for the springs. I want 10" of travel for the front and 16" or so of travel for the rear. Going to be mostly an off road vehicle with some steet time.

Anyone got any suggestions.

Thanks

Randy

Get them from Lee at Raceshock in Phoenix. (raceshock.com). He has been racing VWs for years and will get you set up correctly the first time.

Try this link. This guy did about what it sounds like you are starting and towards the end of the thread, he spends quite a bit of time going through exactly what you are looking for. I used this as a starting point for the ghia that I am doing. We'll how close I am but should get me pretty close. The whole thread is pretty good. www.americansandassoci...&start=250
