      Does anyone know if the rear drive from a Passat syncro G60 (wish bone and axles) need to be narrowed for the wheels to fit within stock Mk1 wheel wells?

      toy_vw , Thanks I measure the passat rear I have in my passat and it looks like the hub surface will be about 2" in from the wheel opening lip - a lot of work, but worth the results

      I didnt modify the passat beem setup at all and in my scirocco it sets very nice....MK1 has a narrow rear trail as it is...it will stance the car out nicely
