Description Complete Details
The BEST way to enjoy the shifting experience, low RPM's at higher speeds, and drop the rear end 4 inches or 101mm in a Classic Volkswagen Type 2 Split Bus is with a PRObuilt Straight Axle Transaxle set up.

This transaxle is Perfect for the Cruiser application. Key features of this transaxle are 3.88 Ring and Pinion, overdrive 4th, along with new synchros, bearings and seals. All transaxles that come from the PRO's are 12 volt and do not come with OIL. The PRO's recommend This oil from LAT or this on Amazon. You will need 3.5 quarts normally.

The PRO's offer a few different transaxle's with choise's, a Cruiser application, (Freeway Flyer) or Performance application (not racing but more aggressive driving)(This will require you to send in your spring plates for this transaxle to fit.)
