These new beams are a direct replacement for the original unit but with custom looks and manufactured here in the UK from high quality material. They can be fitted on all Bay Window Buses and Splitscreen Buses as long as you are happy to run Ball Joint suspension. If you wish to convert your Split Screen Bus to ball joint front suspension then Cool Air can also supply all the parts you need.

Cool Air have been working on the design and manufacture of these beams for over 10 months. Every detail has been carefully designed and manufactured to the highest standard, here in the UK, using the highest quality materials. The end result has meant that there is no equal product currently on the market in design, quality and price. Currently these GermanWagen beams are currently available in two flavours.

Standard width ball joint
Narrowed width ball joint, 65mm (2 9/16″) narrower than standard for the ultimate custom look.

Technical specifications

  • Laser cut side plates
  • Cold drawn seamless tubes
  • Acetal high quality torsion arm inner bushes
  • Top quality INA outer needle roller bearings, which were the preferred bearing used by Volkswagen
  • Pair of steering damper mounts
  • Pair of steering stops
  • Pair of brake servo mounts, which have been set at the correct angle unlike any other beam on the market. They have also been manufactured with multi position holes making them truely universal for all current servos on the market including original ATE, Brazilian and aftermarket versions.
  • German quality steering idler pin
  • New grease nipples
  • Built in caster to improve handling

Rob has a prototype at the shop at the moment and has such faith in the design and build quality that he’s asked James Wotton at Vee Dub (020 8317 2973) to install it on his Split in January. So you can pop down to Cool Air before hand and have a look at it before it gets fitted.
We can also supply the leaves pre narrowed to our beam off the shelf.

Sold outright, with no exchange required, these new beams should be available mid February. We don’t have a price for these, but Rob has promised to let us know first. While you’re waiting check out the detail shots below.[/vc_column_text][mk_image_slideshow images=”1430,1431,1432″ image_width=”792″ image_height=”550″ effect=”fade” animation_speed=”700″ slideshow_speed=”7000″ pause_on_hover=”false” smooth_height=”true” direction_nav=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
