Coil Spring Bundle [4WD Syncro Vanagon]
This is a complete set of four GoWesty-designed dual-rate coil springs for your 4WD (Syncro) Vanagon.
These springs are an exclusive GoWesty design. They are made right here in America by a leading automotive spring manufacturer that supplies many aftermarket companies. They feature an ultra-modern, hot wound (just like the OEM springs), dual-rate design based on the manufacturer's knowledge and our personal R&D over the past decade. They may look unusual, but they work. For the complete story on these springs, and a thorough explanation as to why they are the way to go, click here. For an informative response to the oft-asked question, "If I add lifting springs, do I have to install a longer shock?" click here.
Options—Now you have a decision to make: Do you choose the ZERO lift springs, or the 2" lift springs? Please read this section carefully!
2" LIFT: These springs will provide roughly a 2" suspension lift for all 1986-91 Vanagon 4WD (Syncro) Westfalia campers. If you have the much lighter hard-top Vanagon (or single/double cab truck), these springs will provide too much lift for your suspension geometry. Don't say we didn't warn you! If you have an engine conversion that has a different weight or weight distribution—something other than the Vanagon water-boxer engine—your Vanagon may not sit level. These springs are NOT designed to compensate for Vanagons with engine conversions. If you need additional leveling, we offer spring pads. DO NOT USE 2" FRONT SPRINGS WITH FOX SHOCKS. This spring set INCLUDES our billet aluminum Upper Ball Joint Spacer Kit.
Fox Shocks: If you already have Fox Shocks, or intend to purchase and install Fox Shocks, please select the option in the drop-down menu for ZERO lift front springs, and 2" lift rear springs. Due to the fully adjustable ride-height design of the front Fox shocks, we only recommend zero lift front coils for maximum range of adjustability and front CV axle shaft clearance. If you would like to run our Fox shocks, but do not want to lift your van, this is perfectly fine. Simply select ZERO LIFT in the drop-down menu. This spring set DOES NOT INCLUDE our billet aluminum Upper Ball Joint Spacer Kit.
Limited Lifetime Warranty:
• These springs are guaranteed never to sag, period.
• If even one of these springs sags or becomes defective in any way, we will replace the entire set or refund your money.
• If the returned spring(s) is/are determined to be defective, we will also reimburse you for the initial installation labor. We will also pay for the spring(s) to be returned to the manufacturer for thorough testing to determine what happened and why.
INSTALLATION NOTES: Does not require special tools to install. However, the installation of these springs is very difficult, even with a car hoist and all the correct tools. and requires a 4-wheel alignment after installation. GoWesty recommends that a professional shop with alignment tools install these springs. DO NOT USE 2" FRONT SPRINGS WITH FOX SHOCKS.
ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR LIFTING SPRINGS: If you have installed lifting springs (as opposed to our zero-lift springs), you must also install our Upper Ball Joint Spacer Kit (included with all lifting springs), and will need to have the front end re-aligned. It is important to note that our lifting springs will raise your Vanagon to its suspension limit—which means these springs are designed to get your vehicle as high as possible while still maintaining proper alignment specs. Please read this article for tips on correctly aligning your vehicle!
60 Day Satisfaction Guarantee:
We are confident that you will love these springs. If you do not love the way they feel, you are free to return them anytime within the first 60 days for a 100% refund. Shipping & installation labor excluded.
