944 CV Axle Kit - German 944 Joints with New Axle For Manual Transmission 2WD & 4WD


Introducing the Van Cafe rear drive axle for VW Vanagon. Engineered and manufactured to stock specifications, these axle shafts are designed to be a direct replacement for your old units. Paired with new German 944 Lobro joints and standard Lobro boots, this kit comes with everything you need to replace the axle on one side of your van. 944 joints are preferred for Vans with suspension lifts as they have greater articulation than stock joints and can handle the more radical suspension geometry of a non-stock application.

This kit comes complete with the axle, (2) 944 joints, (2) standard boots, (12) bolts, and molybdenum grease. Some customers reused their serrated washers if they still have the concave property to them. If you don't want to deal with the mess or if your washers are worn out, and you need new ones, they are available here:  Serrated CV/Axle washers

These axles have extensive testing in our shop Van that's running 165 horsepower, and we feel confident in their quality. We will warranty breakage of these axles in Vans up to 165 HP under normal driving conditions. Syncros have caused most axle breakage that we've seen over the years, with uprated motors lifting a wheel while offroading and overloading the opposite axle. We cannot extend the warranty to these situations.

Note: These axles are shipped in raw steel. We highly recommend proper finishing to maximize the longevity and aesthetic of your application. On the flip-side, you could be the first on your block to color match your axles to your van!

Note: As stated in the Bentley factory service manual (page 42.8), your CV joints will need to be installed onto these axles with a press and a bit of anti-seize. New axles are machined to exacting tolerances and are a tight interference fit with the joint. Please be prepared for this step of the installation. Trying to pound them on will only lead to much frustration!
