High Clearance Spring Bundle (Front) [Syncro]
Buy this bundle if you already have our Fox Shocks and want to update your front springs.
This high clearance spring and perch bundle includes a new upper Delrin upper perch to replace the (probably worn out and ripped up original VW) rubber upper spring pad and a new black anodized aluminum lower perches. It is the perfect spring and perch bundle for any Syncro with GoWesty FOX shocks, but especially ideal for our long-travel front shocks.
Our adjustable, remote-reservoir Fox Shocks for Syncro include an extra inch of down travel, a little change which makes a huge difference in performance on a lifted van. But this extra down travel can bring the upper control arm and ball joint uncomfortably close to the spring. Setting up standard-size springs to dodge the upper control “A” arm (UCA) was a finicky process, and even when done properly there were circumstances where the UCA just contacts the spring, which can make an annoying clunking sound. This high clearance spring bundle alleviates that clearance problem all together.
Working with our American spring manufacturer, we made a spring with a ½” smaller overall outside diameter but maintained the same dual spring rates as our other springs that we know to give exceptional ride quality and traction off road and on road. The small overall size keeps the spring safely away from the upper control arms. Additionally, the smaller diameter and the flat-ground ends which makes this bear of a job much more bearable!
Looking for max lift? If you plan to lift the front of your van more than 1", we recommend also purchasing our Upper Ball Joint Spacer Kit to correct your alignment.
Note: The springs and perches in this bundle will only fit our front Fox shocks for Syncro, and the perches will not accommodate other springs.
