I am rebuilding the front steering/brakes/suspension/beam on my 72 ghia. I so far have purchased all new brakes (calipers, backing plate, rotors, bearing. etc.), ball joints, tie rod ends, steering box and damper, seals and rubber and bearing. I am considering buying a new beam from KGPR (http://www.karmannghia.com/viewDetail.asp?strMasterCat=&idproduct=5061). The one I have now one of the torsion leaves is busted, and I don't know where to find one. I am thinking just paying to get a new one. What do you think? better ways? Thanks in advance!
