If you're doing a clutch job this weekend, adding this kit to your cart makes a lot of sense. These parts tend to get pretty worn out, and replacing them will help reduce the chance of clutch chatter in your 2WD and 4WD Vanagon.
The original VW design was not great, so we took the opportunity to improve reliability and longevity in this area. We replaced the original plastic bushing, and rubber seals, with a bushing similar to what VW used at the other end of the shaft. We have been using this improved design for many years now with complete success.
