Anybody know if there is a comparable set of van axles for the early 944 with shorter half shafts?

Can these be found anymore? Other than for $80 on eBay, they seem gone. Was it renamed or something? I'm hoping to find a good but cheap option. Thanks.

Thanks! This is what it took me to (picture), but it looks different than the 90-6085, with the axle extending beyond the cv joint. Also it says 26 splines, as opposed to 33 on the turbo 944. Any thoughts on fitment?



Thank you.

Apparently they don't carry it anymore, the part number doesn't show any findings when searched. The picture you posted is for the AWD version. On Partsgeek it redirects to another page when the 90-6805 part number is used. The new part number is 7289-05150861, but it is out of stock.
Cardone has remanufactured half shafts part number 7289-07077219 or new at http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sk...Passenger+Side

Looks like this site still has them listed (90-6805).

I tried to buy them from an Ebay listing a couple of months ago. The seller called me to offer the Cardone ones or a refund. I took the refund.

Dang, looks like the stock is emptied, except for a few dozen left on the internet, for sale at $80-100.

I guess we have no alternatives now? Are there any non-Empi assemblies for the RWD standard vanagon that are sufficient for a 951? Thanks.

Any thought on used, complete axles?

Taking my rear suspension apart over the next few days and I think my CVs could definitely use some attention. Has anyone found a source who still has some more of those VW axles assemblies that we are using?

I checked out the dans performance parts linked above and if he still has any they are 100 bucks a pop. Is that probably going to be the best source?
