View Full Version : rear axle measurements

Does anybody know what the correct distance between the rear axle bushings is, measured from the inside of one bushing to the inside of the other? I've made some solid bushes for my axle (too cheap right now to use the spherical bearings from Bildon or Shine) and want to get them in the right spot. I didn't measure the axle prior to taking out the old bushes. <sigh>

No worries! Found a bently manual online, downloaded it and got all the info I needed! It's not quite a legit manual, but that's life...

That is TOO funny - a bootlegged, online copy of the manual from a Russian VW club. The president is probably some mafiofski's kid...
