Hello Everybody,
I have a question about dropped spindles. I attempted to drop the front of my 67 bug today and ran into a bit of a problem. Everything went fine till I went to tighten the tie rod end to the spindle and realized there was a lot of play. I did quite a bit of research before purchasing and never saw anything about changing out the tie rod ends. Has anyone had this problem? Maybe a solution? Thanks

Sounds like you may have to change over to the late model tie rod ends. I believe that the '66/'67 still used the early (small) rod ends.

Dropped my 66 bug the same way. Had to change to '68 tie rod ends and wheel bearings.
