    I'm putting a vw 1.6 turbo diesels in my 91 u42t and am looking for a heavy axle. I'm having a hard time finding anything short enough. Anyone got any suggestions. That or has anyone put a longer axle in? I do not care about difficulty, where there is a will there is a way.

    Thanks in advance!

    If your wondering why in putting a vw diesel in it its because it didn't come with a motor or tranny. Putting the normal motor back in is boring lol.

    Search youtube for axle shortening. Basically you cut the tubes off, and take out the extra tube length, and. Weld the ends back on. Then you have a machine shop cut off and respline the ends.
