I need new front end bushing for link/king pin front end. Does anyone know where I can get some, preferably not EMPI?

I love this site for parts. Very user friendly. Just get all the parts at once and save on shipping.

Welcome and Nice build.

Thank You, I will look there later on tonight and see if i can find them. I didn't know there was a strictly German made V.W. parts site. I hope they sell the bushings.

Welcome to The Samba. Sacco also has off road bushing kits. It looks like it rains a lot where you live. A trip to an independent mufflewr shop for a U Bend and a muffler will save your engine's internals from rust.

Nice build! Very Happy I take it the date was wrong on the camera? If not, I'm a little further behind on things than I thought! Laughing

It stays in a garage when I'm not driving it so the rain doesn't affect it much.

I live about 60 miles north of St. Louis.

Yes, the camera's date is way off. We've only owned it for a year.

I do plan on changing the exhaust.

Update: It now has a Holley 2110 (Bugspray) (the 200 cfm model) on it. Very Happy

Can I make a suggestion?
Turn those axle boots 90 degrees, so the seam flexes, and is not being stretched when the axle goes full travel.

What do you guys think of the Holley 2110 (200cfm model "bugspray"). I'm rebuilding it tomorrow, it didn't get put on as fast as I thought it would.

Think About Putting a Turbo On It. Very Happy Not sure how much it will cost for a used kit. I'll just run a tube from the turbo to the carburetor to pressurize it Pry run like 4 Psi.

Oh dang, I didn't know you were supposed to turn them sideways like that. My VW shop said, "10, or 2 O'clock, just not straight up."

I'm thinking about painting the rims and front end silver. What do you guys think that would look like? Good or Bad?

By front end do you mean the beam or what? I've always likes the blue + silver combo
