Porsche Crest What axles/flanges to use w 915 in Vanagon?



Since this has been done by others in the past, can someone advise me on what axles/flanges to use with my 915 trans going in a Vanagon?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Length of axles or size of the CVs? Or are you talking year of Porsche? If you need custom ones, lowbugget helped me out when I did an IRS swap on my bus, spline pattern was the same for me on the axles but I don't know about Porsche/Vanagon stuff. I seem to remember the measurement is cup to cup minus 1/2". Best to work the trailing arm with a jack up and down through the suspension travel range and get a measurement at the tightest point as well.

Need any info available on CVs and axles & lengths.

I was told that Jake Raby has a 915 in his transporter, so I emailed him, but no info yet.

I was hoping there is a bolt-on combination out there. I am watching "the Samba" board as well.

So far, I have learned that .......

Both the VW type 2 and the 915 use 6 bolt x 100mm CV's with a 33 spline ID.

Axle length is 22in for the Synchro, dont know if its the same for a 2wd Vanagon. This is a special length when fitted with a 915, so the axles must be made to order.

Hope someone else can confirm or refute this info.

If you do get custom axles you'll probably want the aftermarket Sway-A-way (SAW) type axles though as the CV is allowed to float towards the center of the axle a lot easier than the stock type with the built in stop and ring collar, doesn't bind nearly as much.

Porsche Crest



Thank you JadeW-

I called SwayAWay and have learned that they keep 22in long 33spline axles in stock (common for off road use) and also learned that early 944 CVs are 100mm dia 6 bolt w 33spline hubs.

I have a few used 944 axles around the shop so I will cut & weld one into a 22in length to test fit to the Doka.

If it fits I will S/O the new axles from SwayAWay.

Cheers,

Len
