Description
 
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!
