OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

CV JOINT, IRS Type 1 and 3, GERMAN, 113-501-331
CV Joint, IRS Type 1 and 3, GERMAN, 113-501-331


 
CV Joint, IRS Type 1 and 3, GERMAN, 113-501-331 are usually GKN/Lobro brand CV Joints. We do NOT recommend non-German CV joints, nor rebuilt CV Joints nor rebuilt CV Axle Assemblies, the defect rate is too high and this is such a messy job!

These joints are for Beetle, Superbeetle, Ghia, and Type 3s.These CV Joints are capable of 12 degrees max angle.

If you have an off-road car, the following information is very useful. Off Road use hammers CV Joints, both in the angle the CVs operate in, and in the shock loads going through the joint. Off Road Cars should consider moving to other CV joints to address both the angle and the power handling. The more angle the CV Joint can take, the more wheel travel the car can have without grenading CV Joints.

The VW THING (Type 181s) uses a Type 2 (Bus) CV Joint, which is a higher-angle joint, it is is capable of 17 degrees of angle. The next CV Joint in line is the Type 4 CV Joint, which is Type 2 and THING Size, but is capable of a 5 more degrees of angle for a whopping 22 degrees of angle! And then the hard core guys use the Porsche 930 CV Joints, which is bigger again for even more power handling, and it handles a 25 degree angle!
