HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Question about rear drive shafts.

Post  fliermike45 on Mon Oct 11, 2010 9:36 pm

Have searched the forums, can't find an answer.

Any recommendations on replacing the rear drive shafts? I have obtained a low mileage Turbo
LSD transmission with a TPC tranny plate and also I'm having a spare Torque Tube overhauled.

Makes sense to put new drive shafts on the car, any ideas for beefing up?

Haven't heard back from SBwrench, but from what I've researched the Type 2 VW joints are the strongest of them all and slip right on NA axle splines. I have a pair on the shelf for when I can source a Turbo tranny. Heck our axles are larger diameter than Porsche 930 axles and I have not seen or heard of a 944 axle snapping.
I kept the rear trailing arms early offset to be able to retain the shorter NA axles which should be stronger, but CV's technically take more abuse at the larger angles though

i dont want stronger shafts in my car. I have popped two of them in the 5 yrs i have driven the car; each time launching too hard. Had they been stronger, chances are that something in the tranny would have let go. I consider my cv joints like transmission fuses. up to you though.

Yup, I've snapped two cages myself. I bought CV's from Kragen Auto Parts, $75 ea lifetime warranty. Bring them 2 pieces they give you one. Very Happy

Shafts

Post  fliermike45 on Tue Oct 12, 2010 7:02 pm

Good advice expuppy, My car has 170000 miles on it and I'm loath to leave the current shafts on with a "NEW" LS1 and Turbo transmission and 9" rear tires. Guess I just fit new stock shafts. Thanks.

I have some stronger cv's on the way. They are from EMPI, here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
They have chrome moy cages and improved balls and races. I should see them soon and will get them installed asap. I'll let you know what happens. I keep breaking passanger outter side. It just rips the cages apart. I too go with the fuseable link theory but I would rather it be the tires and not the cv's.

When I got home from work just now I found a box of (4) EMPI 98-5084-B N5. I'll get them to the cv shop first thing tomorrow. I need to go by the bolt store and get some fresh bolts to put them back on with. If the cv shop doesn't hold me up I'll be rolling by Saturday. Biketoberfest in town and the weather is perfect for a cruise!
