Post strut suspension for tube chassis

I need some help. I am building a tube chassis for a chev powered vw bug,front mounted eng. I would like to know if anyone has info on a strut suspension that will work, similar to a strange, but something affordable, the super bettle uses one, however iam not sure the spindle would support the weight, any ideas???? Thanks

I don't know about an aftermarket strut, but look at a Volvo 200/700/800 series. They use rear drive and a front strut. A diesel version should have a strut with heavy enough spring, but the V6 version should be good for a VW body and light weight tube chassis. Some of the drag race companies have a strut that is basically a coil over shock with a spindle mounted to it, but I don't know where to get one. Saw it on a car, not made for everyday use for sure!
