 Vanagon Syncro Servo Sleeve & Shaft Upgrade Kit

Vanagon Synchro owners with locking differentials (lockers) will be the first to tell you how great they are.  When you think you are about to get stuck, there is nothing like the ability to lock your rear wheels, and sail right past the problem.  You glance over at your passenger and smile as if to say, "watch this..."  With the confidence of an airline pilot putting his landing gear down, you engage the "locker."  You're thinking to yourself, "this thing kicks ass!"  That is until your locker servo shaft and sleeve have become so corroded the shaft gets stuck.  Of course naturally the next thing to get stuck is you.  There is no use having a locker transaxle if it isn't reliable.   Make corrosion related failures a thing of the past when you install this precision crafted Servo Sleeve & Shaft Upgrade Kit.  Happy trails!
Hard anodized aluminum sleeve for maximum corrosion resistance 
High grade stainless steel shaft 
Available in either short (106 mm), or long (121 mm) length

Vanagon High Performance Close Ratio Gears

These gears are manufactured to the highest standards. They are made from fine grain vacuum melt steel, heat treated, put through a cryogenic process, and then shot peened.  Consider changing gear ratios for less RPM and better gas mileage.  If you want to improve your hill climbing ability we have what your looking for.  For a complete listing of all our close ratio gears and performance items, click on:
