Hey Everybody,
I just bought my 2001 VW Beetle. I haven't even had it a week yet and loving it. I just have one problem. The guy I bought it from says it was lowered. I have parked it next to another beetle and mine does look about 1/2 in lower than the other. My problem is my back right shock/strut sounds like it is bottoming out or bouncing real bad and I hear a hard thump when I hit a hole or something. I pulled the wheel of this weekend to see if I could see anything and found that the shock installed is 1J0512011BA. According to my research this is an OEM shock. Does anybody know if this is true? Also is this lowered job a HACK job that someone did with just lowering springs and kept OEM shocks? Any help Would be great Thanks
P.S. I will be putting my pic in the photo section this week.
