We have these original German axles rebuilt locally as a quality alternative to the new Chinese Empi axles that we also sell. While the low cost Chinese units have proven reliable, many of our customers prefer the dependability of German materials, and the recycled approach is not only great for the environment, but great for the pocketbook.
The rebuild process on these axles is quite unique. Each CV joint is disassembled, then the bearing races are machined slightly larger, and oversize ball bearings are used. The net result is an all-German CV joint that has proven to be very reliable, quiet, strong, and far less expensive than building an axle with new German joints.
These axles are sold EXCHANGE, which means we need to get your old axles back to replenish our rebuild stock. A $50 core charge applies per axle. Two required per vehicle.
Important notes: These front axles will fit all 4WD Syncro Vanagons, and are NOT built with the heavy duty hard outer boots. Also, being these axle assemblies are rebuilt from 20 year old cores, they are not cosmetically perfect. These noticable blemishes are purely cosmetic and will in no way affect the durability or longevity of the CV joints, or the assembly as a whole. In addition, the outer CV dust seal may or may not be present. These seals are not available new, and are therefore not replaceable, but the upside is that your front wheel bearings are sealed, and provide their own protection from the elements.
