**SHOP IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED**
**Online store is still open. If it's in stock, it ships.**
With COVID-19 and my daughter doing online school, I've got no time for shop activities. Shutdown the shop for a while until I can figure out a way to serve my VW people and still be a kick ass father and husband. Will update the site and alert social media when I'm able to be back at it. Most likely not until some time into 2022. Thanks for your patience!
I'm Aaron D. Badertscher. The owner/operator of this one man show called Wide Five. Just wanted to take a second to thank you for stopping by the site and to let you know if you have any questions about ANYTHING to please feel free to contact me. Stay Rad!
On the rare occasion that I actually have spindles available to sell outright, this is where they will be listed.
Otherwise, you send me your spindles and I do the following, for $250…
- Break down the spindles, clean, inspect and notify you of condition.
- Media blast all components.
- Clean up spindle nut threads.
**Please note: No link pin parts are covered in the rebuild. If you need/want link pin shims, races, pins, etc… there will be an additional cost. Also, if any king pins are worn beyond repair there will be an additional cost for OG replacements or new king pins. This really doesn’t happen very often, but is worth mentioning so there are no surprises on your end.**
No additional cost for king pin bushings! They are included with stock rebuild.
**My turn around time is usually 5-7 business days, but please figure on a two week wait. Will it seriously take me that long to get them done? No, I’m just trying to cover my ass in case the volume of werk in the shop that week is heavy.**

Here at Wide Five we specialize in all mechanical aspects of your Vintage air cooled VW.
