I recall seeing some adjustable trailing arm bushings on the STF a long time ago, don't know if they are still out there

the 2 people I know who have made them are Marco Mansi (who used to have a web site but I can't find it) and Dave Butler in Australia https://www.facebook.com/david.butler.52831
Both were an offset trailing arm bolt.

The problem that I see with eccentric bushes etc. is that toe and camber change with them.
I'm designing adjustable arms with spherical bearings. They'll allow toe and camber changes independently of each other.
I'll be making them for 968's 944's 924's and IRS bugs/ghias of course, I've convinced my boss that this is a good idea  Smiley

If you get early 944 steel TAs (the type that are the same as Beetle) and the spring plates from the same car, they are ride height adjustable, and camber adjustable.  No need to redesign anything.
