VW MK I - Complete Front Struts w/Rear C/O Shocks8510.75
Pre-assembled with camber plates and matching rear shocks. No spring compressor, cutting, welding or modification needed. Fabricated from 1026 DOM steel, the Ground Control strut is much stronger than the stock strut. Skip welded 0.250 flanges reduce flex while adding strength. 1 inch shorter than stock, reduced droop and Koni strut inserts specially valved by Koni of Holland for Ground Control or Koni race strut inserts are provided, depending on suitability with your spring rate. POC, PCA and SCCA legal. This package price is significantly discounted, and is intended for club racing and track days.
Camber and caster are separately adjustable by sliding the mounts, without removing any components from the car. The priority of this design is to allow fast, repeatable alignment changes at the track.
The Ground Control camber plates feature two sets of bearings, a proprietary bearing, made to our specs by Aurora in the USA, which allows for articulation of the shock shaft. This spherical bearing is very understressed, as the Ground Control design does NOT support the weight of the car on the spherical bearing. Instead, the weight of the car is supported by a completely separate articulating needle bearing, which is also manufactured for Ground Control in the USA.
