Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

Well, the correct answer is yes, everytime you make a change to the front suspension, you must align it.

However, I probably won't unless there is an issue.

Damn car has already had 2 alignments this year.

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

I’m sure you could go a little bit thicker but it was enough to allow the strut to slide in without too much issue and still tighten up.

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

Installed but need a Cobra brake caliper before I can do a test drive.

I did use a thin piece of .023" shim stock to make up the difference in diameter.

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

So for folks who are running coil overs with this swap, did you start with golf coil overs? Pulled my struts off and will need to modify the upper spring perch and the upper nut for the Godfrey plates. This is because the diameter of the XR strut rod is smaller than the VW strut rod. Also need to tr...

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

Please just remember I'm putting these on a highly modified XR, not a Scorpio. I did bring in a dozen donuts to the boys in the back to get the spring perches machined off since they arrived yesterday. The upper bearings also arrived. Need to get these installed along with a oil cooler before the 24...

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

I saw the difference is only a few mm so I'll get some shim stock from work.

Yes, I am running coil overs too

Re: Merkur front hubs with Volkswagen struts

So I’ve just ordered up the KYB agx adjustable struts since I’m running Scorpio hubs on my XR. Are folks just running the VW bump stops? Also did I read correctly that the Jetta struts use a 14mm top nut and the XR is 12mm? Guess I’ll have to drill out the upper nut of the Godfrey camber/caster plat...
