  • kombi211 created a new blog post, brembos and IRS conversion
    brembos and IRS conversion
    •   Kombi211
    •   Friday, 04 February 2011
    Well I have started now on the IRS conversion with the 944 alum arm The parts being used for the rear are as followed:944 alum trailing arm 944t axle assembles cv to cv996 rear rotors 944 4 pot brembosthing transmodified swing axle spring platesfirst i started off by cleaning the arm and painting them up painted arm with new bushing installedremoved all swing axle tranny and cleaned 40+ years of grease and grim new weld in bracketsI was going to use 944 trailing arm but i have ran into a little problem already my torsion bar are to short. So for now i will use modified vw spring plates till i can get some upgrade torsion bars ordered and shipped. ( I will post pic on the spring plates once I start on them)With the Irs conversion its going to be a little different from a Bug conversion. 1st. being the typ3 has a removable sub-frame and the bottom of the torsion tube has a extra support welding on.2nd the frame horns top half is smaller then a regular Bug tube. this makes the weld in bracket sit a little higher then the tube and not inside like on a bug.What i done was cut the metal away from the bracket and just folded it up and out of the way to start with that way once the bracket is tacked in place. And its time for final welding i can trim the metal down and hammer it down snug and weld it to the installed brackets. well thats the plan for now. Being like i said the bracket sits out and above the frame horns..once i have everything where it need to be. Checked and double checked and then tack welded... I will assemble everything to check fitment and alignment of the arms.Hope to do that in the next day or two. After that I am just going to remove the rear sub frame for the clean up and  welding....some updates pic'stest fitting arm on modified swing axle spring platechecking alignment before fully welding everything up
