Caddy Mk1 (Type 14) Rear Axle Kit


This is a full air suspension conversion which replaces the leaf springs on the rear of the Mk1 VW Caddy from 1979 to 1992. This is a simple bolt on conversion rated as competent DIY fitment or local garage fitment. This uses the correct airbags for the job (note: not double convoluted bags), very strong and well engineered brackets. Can be used in combination with any of our management kits or front suspension kit. Note this kit uses rose joints which can be a touch noisy but it is the best handling and riding kit on the market.

We have a new 6 bar rear kit air suspension with adjustable rose joint watts link suspension. As is always the rose joints have a harsher nature than poly bushes in the standard kit but for high performance vehicles offer more accurate and more consistent location, which is why they are used in motor sport.

This kit is a superb bolt on rear end conversion to full air suspension. Lots of high quality heavy duty brilliantly engineered parts. This conversion will allow the rear to drop significantly, has superb ride quality and superb handling. This is full air. We have seen some very dodgy looking flipped axle/semi air conversions but the ride horribly and risk cracking your leaf spring which could be fatal. This is a proper conversion.

We have kits for all VW Caddies from 1979 to current so if you are looking for later Caddies we have it covered. Please call if you cannot see your vehicle.
