Gen 1 Neon VW Suspension
(Vehicle adaptor brackets not shown.)
MEKK Gen I Neon Frame Kit
MEKK's Gen I Neon frame allows a 1995 to 1999 Dodge or Plymouth Neon
to be used as a donor vehicle to power a full length VW based kit car. The Gen I
frame kit comes with a strong 2x3 inch rectangular steel frame, adaptor brackets
for a Gen I Neon front clip, grade 8 bolts and nuts for suspension brackets, and
an excellent instruction/assembly manual.
Our current offerings are for donor vehicles with automatic transmissions.
Because the cable shifter used in the Neon has issues even with stock length
We've had shifting problems when extending these cables the additional
needed in a full length vehicle. We haven't given up, but we don't
want to sell you a
problem. So, for now, we're offering auto only kits.
Note: Adaptor brackets must be welded on the donor. Donor manufacturing
variations, crash damage, and road tweaks make each donor slightly different. To
ensure proper fit, you must weld the adaptor brackets after assembly on the
Optional parts include:
Front disk brake kit
Rotors and bearings to fit our stock VW suspension
Rotor stud patterned to fit stock Neon wheels (Spacer
This is a Brazilian made, adjustable, VW
suspension. These come without
steering boxes because we recommend you use the donor rack and pinion unit.
The Neon rack and pinion unit is much stronger, has no kick back, and has
an appropriate steering ratio for a street car. It also bolts up to the Neon
collapsible steering column (of course!) providing you additional crash safety.
Ribbed floor panels with
cross support bar. Many builders will choose to use the
donor's floor panels.
These panels can be welded or bolted to the frame. Welding
is recommended. [Out of stock as of 8/15/07]
These seat mounts are
recycled Neon seat mounts. Most builders will use the
donor's seat mounts
(tracks). But if yours are damaged or missing we can supply
them. We buy them
locally, sand blast them, prime them with Dupont antirust primer
and enamel them
gloss black. You can do the same for less, depending on the supply
at your local salvage yard.
High Performance/Racing/Off Road Gusset Kit
This kit provides four reinforcement gussets. These gussets
are welded to the frame/adaptor joint to increase strength in this critical
area. This is extra insurance for sever duty applications. This kit also
includes instructions and suggestions for customer supplied additional
reinforcements. If you're planning on HP above 155 this kit is for you! [Note:
No warrantee is implied or intended for off road or racing applications.]
Power Steering Hoses
Even if you use the donor's
power rack and pinion unit, the stock hoses are several
feet too short. You can
get hydraulic hoses at your farm supply store or roll your own
using bulk tubing
(the correct fitting can be difficult to find). Using the proper hose type
required for safe operation so don't try to go cheap here. Or, you can buy the
complete, correct length hoses with the proper fittings from us.

Special Width Front Suspension
Most kit cars use the stock
VW width. Some use radical offset wheels to widen the
track width. This isn't a
good idea as it destroys the stock bearings pretty quickly.
Handling may be
better than stock but it isn't as good as it should be. Wheel offset
match bearing design. Our standard suspension provides the standard VW
width using standard FWD wheels (matching the donor). Our bearings are
for this wheel offset. If you need a different track width or want to use wheels
with a different offset please contact us. You will also need to replace the
wheels and possibly the bearing assembly. This ain't necessarily
