Independant Rear Suspension

There are two types of rear suspension to be found under a Beetle. The first is the more common 'swing axle' type, featuring rigid axles that pivot from the gearbox. These were used from the very earliest cars up until the end of production. The second type, shown on this page is the more advanced 'IRS' (Independant Rear Suspension) type, most commonly found on 1302, 1303 and semi automatic cars. These feature driveshafts with CV (constant velocity) joints both next to the gear box and at the hub end of the axle and also a substantial diagonal link from the front of the chassis forks to the hubs. If you are unsure about which type of suspension you have, check to see if your own car has rubber boots on the axles at the gearbox end only, or at the hub end too.
