10.5" Long-Travel Kit For Stock IRS Suspension:

This is how we set up the Baja Squared project to get over 10" of travel from the stock IRS set-up. Kit includes the following NEW parts:

(2) VW Thing Axles
(2) Conversion Stub Axles
(2) Transmission Drive Flanges
(24) New VW Bolts with External Teeth (use a standard 12-point socket, not the funky VW one that strips out and busts your knuckles!)
(12) Torque distribution washers
(2) KYB shocks with correct valving for a basically stock-set-up baja

$529 - Free Shipping to AzBaja members

I suspect it is all bolt in. All that stuff with the exception of KYB shocks came stock on a VW thing. It is also much cheaper than what VW sold it for.

These use different CV's and flanges, with the new CV's you can go beyond the stock limitations of a type 1 cv. Should need no modification to the arm.

CV Angle is the limiting factor when it comes to your wheel travel, once they bind your done.


You might have to notch some spring plates and bumpstops though.

so just priced out thing axles and stubs and i see this potential, i think im gonna tackle this in the new couple weeks, i think i may even extend my rear control arms, im not sure yet, i may just do this axle conversion and then plan on the front a arms im trying to get going, if this builds 10.5 rear travel, and im aiming for 15 travel up front, should i try getting the rear closer in travel to the front or does this sound pretty stout?
