      Any good fabrication shops down in the inland empire that would be willing to notch my frame? Or anyone on here able to do it?
      I know its not exactly a common thing that people do so someone that knows about VWs would be a plus.
      Thanks! Axle is rubbing ridiculously.

      It's not in the IE, but I got mine done at Empire Fabrication.

      They will have a booth at the European Car Show on May 5th, you should come on by and hit them up in person.

      I got mine notched by a really good guy in Ontario. Dude is legit. You can tell right when you walk into his place and see the other fab work he's done.

      No more axle rub/knock.

      Typically they can range in up to and sometimes more than a couple hundred bucks. Go to George. You'll be happy you did. It may not even cost you a couple hundred bucks.

      Also looking in the IE, thanks for the suggestions Bernie, Mykey, and soviet.

      Any more info on George, like his shops name? I'm right above Ontario, and your endorsement sounds good

      His place is low car friendly. I went in there pretty low. I left lower.

      I don't know the name off hand of George's fabrication shop, but I can get it later. I'm at work.
