Has anyone had any dealing with Atomwerk IRS springplates? (www.Atomwerk.org) They have plates that will raise or lower the rear of a bug. Im thinking of getting a set to Raise the rear end 3". Already raised the front end with raised spindles and Disk brakes now for the rear end. Changine over from 4 lug drums to 5 lug disk on all four corners along with a 3" body lift. Just courious about the Spring plates. Sounds more sanitary than notching the plates.

They look like a decent product, but the price seems a bit steep. Notching can be done for basically nothing but the time to do it. Keep in mind if you dont already have Bus or Type 4 CVs, you will need to upgrade to handle the added travel. The stock CVs will wear out due to binding fairly quick.

Thanks, Im not sure what to do with the rear end, I want to raise it but not sure how to do it safe. I am building this up for my grandson and I really dont want to build a death trap for him.
The last time I played with VW's, IRS was a dream. I had the swing axles with reduction boxes and that gave me the added lift I needed. I do not want to cut the body for shocks to go with longer plates (2x2's or 3x3's) as he will be driving this to school in all sorts of weather.

They look well made but I'd spring for longer rear shocks, notched spring plates and T-4 or 930 cv joint conversion. Spend the money where it will give you back the most.
