You will have to use all of the suspension parts from the early Super Beetle: struts, spindles, control arms, ball joints (obviously), and maybe the tie rods and sway bar as well. You may also have to use your late upper strut bearing on the early strut assy, or it may not fit the hole in the body.
Main thing to ask, before you make the swap, is how low do you want to go? If you're about grinding the surface of the pavement than go with the early setup. If you're just going for a 2-3" drop for performance sake - then stay with your later suspension. You also have the benefit of negative roll radius steering on the later setup.
