      Ive been keeping tabs on you

      Clutchmasters is nice.....

      Axles look good too. Are you plus suspension or still running the Rallye rear control arms?

      Time for a username change. Maybe do a Kyle and get banned so you can create a new profile.

      I have the passat rear. I think it's the same as a rallye.

      Dogger- I had this name for a very long time and I'd have to change every forum that I have ever logged on too. No chance. Who knows, another vrt isn't out of my reach for a daily/winter beater

      old update
      I placed the syncro coilovers on the rear trailing arm. This is a photo of the coilovers at the highest level

      If you haven't noticed the rear breaks are eurospec big break kit. That now have to go

      I was always wondering the difference between the rear struts on synchro vs rear beam

      I did, my post was just a comment on that. It wasn't a question about what the difference was.

      update
      most people have used the rear passat axles and cut it 10mm to fit the rear. But I only had the haldex axles from the TT. I was told that these solid axles cannot be cut short because VW heat treats them. So the machine shop made shorter shafts from me with a set of hollow front axles.
      These will be my spare set. DSS will make a custom set for this application capable to hold 500AWD

      I have never messed with them, but I am going out on a limb to say that this sounds suspect to me. All VW axles are heat treated at the spline ends. Even if the entire axle was heat treated, I am not sure why that would prevent you from shortening. Might prevent you from being able to cut easily on a lathe, but nothing a fiber cut of wheel wouldn't be able to do. Then make a proper splice with a machined press fit insert then weld. Perhaps I am missing something.

      No, your arent S....I was also understood that all the OE axles can be shortened too.....

      Hanz (my machinist wizard) said he just needs to see the axles/prop shaft, and stated "most likely yes".

      I guess it has to do with the capabilities of the machine shop/machinist.


      BUT...DSS axles arent bad either and I hear they have done a few of these awd sets.

      VRT are you plus suspension? or G60? If you stated elswhere I apologize for not finding it...

      The hollow front sets can be done but the solid rears cannot. DDS said the same thing. They will make a new set not cut my old set.
      I am + suspension
