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.

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...

Focus wheels are 17x7 and in good condition, no curb rash or anything like that. They include the tires and I think they are in usable condition. They are an off brand tire, don't remember who's though. Selling these for a buddy.
