Does anyone offer a raised spindle for a super beetle? Will a Thing spindle work? As I've read that a thing spindle will give about 2.5" lift

Never heard of such a thing. Lifted Super beetle is arguably a bad idea.

There's a few lifted supers getting around but if you going offroad its a good idea to brace the strut towers and inner control arm mounts.

One of my old 73 supers was thrashed unmercifully around the farm for years and held up fine till the seats fell through the floor with rust.

Just need to raise the strut cups abit is the only way to lift them
and some big tyres Wink
