Axle flip kit?

Post by Adamgav5000 » Fri Jan 04, 2019 9:48 pm

Hi all,

I am about to fit my axle flip kit but I want to make sure that I’m fully prepared. Are all of the bolts reusable or will they need replacing?

If they do need replacing do you all use VW stretch bolts or just replace for normal bolt so they are reusable in the future?

Thanks

Agree with Liam here, Darkside kits ate really well engineered in my humble opinion, used Eibach and KW in the past and darkside for me are superior

No trouble at all here you go, I would go gor the super low option as it has an off set locator which is off centre. This will ensure the rear wheel always remains central in the arch. Message me direct if you want my number, happy to help fellaImage

For the sane ish kind of money, I wouldnt go VMAXX personally as i inow a few friends who have had issues. I run KW front and darkside super low rear with shortened gaz shocks. I run 20” and use it daily and its brilliant! KW are big money but ive also used STX that are made by KW and are brilliant for front! You could sell the lowering kit and dampers and then buy a darkside kit and Gaz which in my opinion would be a great set up for not massive money

do you have to change rear shocks when you flip the axle ?
