Vanagon 2WD Spring Set: SCP

In stock

Make your Vanagon handle like a performance car.

The stock Vanagon springs are not really the best for spirited driving, especially if you have a Westfalia or other camper, and in an emergency, it can be a matter of life or death. We have designed these springs for the 2 wheel drive Vanagons including the Westfalia and other campers. We have also designed into them more strength in the rear to work nicely with Subaru and other engines as well as added heaters, racks, trailers and other added loads. These are not lifting or lowering springs but typically raise the ride height on a Wolfsburg or Carat by 3/4" depending on the age of your original springs. Other models of Vanagon may see a slight lowering in the front.

Our customers say they haven't found the ride to be overly harsh and feel the much better steering response makes their Van safer and therefore more relaxing to drive.

"I wanted to let you know that the springs were a great addition to the van. After the weekend trip with just the new shocks, I thought perhaps I wouldn't need the springs. I am glad that I made the decision to go ahead and have you install the springs - what a difference! the road just got far smoother."

Produced by an OEM spring manufacturer to our specifications.

Do you really need progressive springs? In a Vanagon, progressive springs give a ride that is both too soft to control body lean and nose dive and too stiff to ride nicely over larger dips. Click here to read why.
