Help Identify This Axle

OK everyone, here is the latest challenge from my truck....

My 300 Tdi is an amalgam of 90, D1, and Classic parts. The latest thing I am trying to sort out is the axles.

They are not original... 24 spline integrated drive flange axles, disc brakes all around. Diff has a drain plug at the 4 o'clock position as looking from the rear and a fill plug on the back about halfway up.

So I am guessing they came out of either a Classic or a D1, but I don't know how to tell. I have taken some pictures of the axle end including with the drive shaft removed some. I am hoping someone knows enough about these things to be able to tell me once and for all what they are.

Thanks.......

Start by checking the housing to see what number is stamped on it.

Stamped into the long side of the tube, on the "outside" (opposite of the drive shaft). Might need to do some wire brushing to see it.

What are you trying to identify.....the axles or the axle housings.....both? The axle shaft looks to be the standard D1,D90,late RR axle shaft. That being said it means that the spindle(stub axle) and hub are for the ABS varients whether or not you have ABS. If you are saying that the fill plug is on the diff housing then you have an old housing with a 24 spline chunk...maybe I misunderstood?

1) There is no number to be found. The PO did a restoration and the axle is painted with something very thick like POR15, hiding any numbers. I am not going to start grinding away paint just for that.

2) I am really just trying to figure out what I have so when I need to order parts I know what to look for... for example if I need new pads, new rotors, etc.... what do I "say I have" to get the right things?

They have to be from something else, since an 84 Tdi did not have disc brakes in the back as far as I know. So the question is from where.

for the rear, take a picture of the caliper mounting bracket and caliper, also should be a number on the caliper, post those up and should be able to identify by that

Pads and rotors are the same for D1, D90, and RR Classic. Only difference would be if you had a brake wear sensor which I doubt.

And even if he did there wouldn't be anything to plug it in to on an '84.

That has to be from a D1..

My RRC has 24 sp axles and the drive flange is NOT integrated. But they ARE integrated on my girlfriends 98 D1.

HTHs
