Upper Ball Joint Spacer Kit
The VW Vanagon came in many different suspension heights, from very low (Carat, Wolfsburg edition) to very high (Syncro). These ball joint spacers are a great way to get the suspension back in the adjustable range, especially on lifted 2WD Vanagons. If you are having trouble with alignment and/or front tires wearing badly on the shoulders, try a pair of our spacers. Read more about the spacers here.
Fitment Note: These spacers fit perfectly with most brands of ball joints out there, but we have seen some cases of Delphi brand, in particular where the ball joint top cap was too tall or the mounting holes were offset a bit too far for them to fit properly. We have even seen different iterations from the same manufacturer fit differently. Therefore, we can only guarantee fitment with the Febi/Bilstein joints that we sell.

- (4) 35mm metric allen bolts - class 12.9 (grade 8 equivalent)
A pair of these spacers are included with each GoWesty 2WD lifting spring set.
