    I thought there were different lengths for the stock axles for different VW vehicles?

    Oh well, I build my own axles, so it's not my area, lol.

    Is there any benefit to clearancing type 1's? *I just picked up a incomplete car today, and it has the type ones, and the rear appears to have about 8" with what appears to be 19" drive axles. *This is a bit of concern, considering the front has near 20" of travel (though not all usable with the current tire size). *The front of the car is also much wider than the rear, and I was thinking that if I made some longer/wider rear arms with longer drive axles that may increase the travel. *I also don't want to be chasing my tail, to gain an inch or two. *As of now, the shocks/limiting straps are the limiting factor in the travel, but as I said, we just got the car today. *I do not remember the exact dimensions of the track width front and rear, but if memory serves, the rear is about 5 inches narrower on each side. *If I were to extend and still use the type ones, what would be a reasonable expectation of travel?

    5" at 12DEG=1.1" more droop. Your up travel is limited by ground clearance, so unless you Put on larger tires you can't take advantage of the longer axle on up travel. Unless it's set-up with 10" of ground clearance now.......

    This pretty much confirms My guess that you can run more than 12DEG on a type 1 CV. A 16.25" axle @ 12DEG would only give 7.5" of travel. To get 10" of travel, you would be in the 17DEG range.
