Stage 2 Air Ride Assembled Beam - Type 3   Price: 2500
To date, as os 10/03/18, the PRO's at Airkewld have now built over 17,500 Ultimate Beams in 11 years. Many of the top builders in the industry including some OE Kit car builders trust the PRO's to give them the best quality product on the market. But it goes beyond just the product. It might sound cliche, but our customer service and tech support is where we excel.

The industry asked for it. The industry needed it. The industry cried for it. Airkewld has now brought it to the table. PRO-Built Beams.

If you have followed us for a while, the evolution of our business has changed through out 10 years of doing business. The goal is still the same, outfit you and your ride with the products and the support you both deserve.

The industry has offered what you would think would be similar to our PRO-Built Beams in the form of an assembled beam ready to bolt into your vehicle. Albeit, the looks can be deceiving, they are far, far apart.

The industry "was" scared to present quality parts in fear that they would not sell anything. So they made Brazilian adjustable beams, took core front ends apart, hot tanked the parts, rebuilt the spindles with Chinese king and links, cast drop spindles and Chinese tie rods ends. The proceed to spray paint it black and sell it. Would I recommend you put this on your investment? Not if your life depended on it. If you needed to "flip" the vehicle, it is "an" option.

So, what makes a PRO-Built Beam a PRO-Built Beam? Aah yes, the question that is usually answered with a picture. Some call it art, some say quality, the debate on whether to mount it about your fireplace or install it on your pride n joy is up to interpretation.

Fits the following:

Type 3

The PRO's Recommendations:
2 Valve Air Management kit

In one of the pictures, you will notice Wide 5 BAD Series Disc Brakes installed. All our disc brakes can be added and installed on our PRObuilt beams. If you would like to purchase one with the brakes seen in the photo, click here and the entire assembly will be added to your cart. Or you can add brakes manually by going to the brake section here after adding the brake install here.

Usually Ships in 4 to 6 Weeks

The dilemma, how to narrow a type 3 front end? You can't. You want to lower it to get some ride back. Drop spindles, right? Not likely. Solve the problem completely with a PRObuilt beam that does both and gives you 7" of up and down movement when controlled with an air management kit. Ride quality, check. Drop, check. Bolt on solution, check. Install your factory disc brakes, check. Want to install 4 piston Wilwood and finally have performance braking? Check. Pretty soon, you start looking at all those checked boxes and the decision is simple. Go PRObuilt!

The Stage 2 PRO-Built Beam is built to order and can take up to 2 months to assemble. Please be patient as we supply you with the industries best front suspension.

This Stage 2 complete 4" narrowed front end is spindle to spindle, built on Air Ride. Comes powder coated or chrome plated, ready to install. The beam will fit all Type 3 Squareback's, Notchback's and Fastback's, even the type 34 Razor.

The installation of this beam requires a couple minor mods. It requires two holes drilled into the trunk section for the shock studs, trimming of the pinch mold on the front bulkhead and the bottom mounts. For more info on the mods, please read the install article here.

The front end comes complete with the following;
New Ultimate Beam
New Through Rods
New Tie rods
New Shocks
New Drop Spindles
New Steering Dampener
New Hardware
New Zerks
Premium Tie rod Ends
German Ball Joints
PRObuilt Steering Box
ReConditioned Pitman Arm/Clamp
PRObuilt Control Arms
New eccentrics.

The front end will be coated apart and assembled to keep the clean looks with new hardware. The front end will be greased and alignment will be set in rough application so that it can be shipped on a pallet. Shipping will be calculated separate. No Core is needed. Brakes are not included but can be for an additional cost.

Reviews - Type 3 PRObuilt narrowed beam
May 31, 2018
Reviewer: Eric Bennett from RENO, NV United States

First it comes crated perfectly. The directions are very detailed but for some one that is new to the type 3 car or VW it needs a few more pictures of what and where the modifications needed to be done before the installation is done. After the install I couldn't be more pleased...the ride is incredible,fit and finish is perfection. As for tech support they answered all my questions promptly even on the weekend. I will be a Airkewld customer for life.
