9A 020 drive shaft options
« on: Sep 01, 18, 08:00 »
Hi there

Going to be swapping a 1.8 16v,with a 9a 020, in my 83 Jetta coupe soon, and just want to confirm my driveshaft option before I go ahead and purchase them.

After checking around what looks to be my best option would be drive shafts from a 91-92 cabriolet. 100mm outer and inner joints, with what I understand is a more robust shaft with correct length for my wheel base.

Was going to pick up these two pre-assembled shafts because they seem like a good no fuss deal.

Interested in what some of you guys have done, and if you have any suggestions on the topic please chime in.

Correct, you need late Cabrio axles. You have to slightly grind out your hubs where the outer CV goes into the hub. 30 seconds each with a dremel or die grinder. or you can swap to 100mm hubs from a later cabrio too.

Those axles will be fine, or Empi as well. I woundn't buy axles from the dealer unless they're under $110 each.

Thanks for the info guys.

Hey Mr. was it less than $100 with cv joints included? The ones that I linked are for complete drive shafts, 100mm joints included. I’m all for buying original VW but I’m sure with cv joints it’ll be considerably more.

Cheers
