    Passat 1Z TDI 4-stud with drums, '95 model - 1344mm

    - the car I expected to be wider, isn't [:s]

    Managed to measure this from underneath with no probs, so should be an easy measurement for anyone else.

    Interesting that is the same width as the 1Z engine toledo,is the front wide track or not? (toledo is not)
    Also measured 2 x 5 stud mk3 golf GTI axles, 1 with ABS & 1 without, both came in at 1358mm.

    Hi, new to this forum, was directed to this thread by members of Ed38 and Autostadt.ie. I have a '94 CL. Can someone tell me it's exact length and what's the narrowest mk2 beam I can fit in it's place?

    94 is right on the changeover for the mk3, see the picture at the top of this page. best bet is measure your beam as it could be the same as mk2 or wider! to measure you'll have to jack the rear up (chock front wheels!) then drop the axle off both the rear shocks so you can get a tape measure across

    Has anyone posted the dims for the Mk1 beam? I've been searching but can't find anything maybe I'm missing it, idk.
    I can measure mine tomorrow but I'm not sure if it's actually straight or not.

    The table is being fixed in post 1.

    From one of my notes offline, that's a straight axle :thumbup:
