I am looking for a link beam that has been narrowed and has adjusters. Drop spindles would be great as well. Let me know what you have and what you want.

Hey Chris,

What are you looking at as far as price narrowing and lowering a beam. No R/R included just the beam to you. Also time it takes you? Yes franklins is great stuff but how cool is it to ride local and when people ask you give them a local that did the work. Keep our money and goods here!

Rich

Hey Rich, in the coming months, I'll more than likely be changing out my drop spindles, they are CB Linkpin/Drum.

Let me know your timeframe etc, might be able to save you some cash.

BTW, Franklin did my beam and it's freaking AWSOME, 4 inch narrowed WITH shock towers. It fits like a glove, he deffinately spent some time figuring out how to make it work.

price would be comperable to franklin's. And franklin is local, kinda, he's in state at least. and yes, he has them down to a science. would you go to your local doctor if a specialist was in Seattle?
VW's are like children to me, and I want the best for them, even if I lose money doing it.

I build beams/bus drop spindles here in The Valley. Here is a 4" narrowed beam/drop spindles I did for a '60 bus last month.

I have a guy that turns king pins. These spindles were so nice, that they didn't need much done. One king pin was replaced, link pins/needle cages were great.
