I just plugged the OEM CV joint part # into Sunset Porsche's web site and got a hit ($73.64). So these are available again? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Call them or any Porsche dealer and ask. They are linked to the worldwide inventory. Porsche parts number stay forever as a lookup number. No assurance of availability. Let us know. The complete axles have been available.

Didn't see a phone number but sent an email. They've been very responsive by email in the past so we'll see what they say. They've also been pretty good about listing NLA items as such in the past so I'm cautiously optimistic. I also thought only complete axle assemblies were available which never made sense why joints weren't offered since they had to be getting the joints from somewhere.

I'll let you know if I hear anything from Sunset.

I bought new, complete drive shaft setups from Jim Ellis Porsche in 2016.

Part 91433200903

They were $ 280.60 ea back then, but I see them listed as 742.20 now.

EDIT: suncoast porsche has em for $ 684.21
https://www.sunsetporscheparts.com/oem-part...aft-91433200903

I wonder why the price tripled...are they NLA again? WTF!!

WTF? $700 bucks now? At that price they better be able to handle 500hp+. I sure hope CVs are now available separately.

we get a download from Porsche once a month of their price list with many many parts that are priced, but when you order they say that they have been discontinued.
No cv joints we have the cv joints and axles rebuilt by a very reputable guy and have never had a problem, even the old original 914-6 cv joints!

Same - bought a set 2 years ago from Jim Ellis and it cost me just at $600 for both axles and CVS, fully assembled. They even came greased.

I bought two new complete axles and CV joints from Porsche North Ohmstead, Oh for IIRC $275 each. They are available. Buy the complete axle and have piece of mind.

Call the Beaverton Porsche main # and ask for Luke in parts. They separate out the wholesale parts business as online only under the Sunset Porsche Parts Name.

The Gaudin Porsche website quoted me a shipping cost of $10, so I'm assuming it's flagged as available somewhere in the US.

I purchased the new half shafts from Sunset. After about 1,700 miles we noticed that there was all kinds of grease coming out of them. Now that Eric Shae/ PMB has new ones, I would recommend calling Eric first.

Sunset got back to me about the joints. They are available but are shipped from Germany (3-5 weeks). This means there is a competitive option to buying Type I joints that need modification.

For complete axle's, Eric's already modded and ready to bolt in Type I assemblies win hands down at less than half the current price of OEM axles.

It's nice to have options (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Can anyone explain, or does any one know, why the Type 1 Bug and Porsche 944 CV joints have 6 bolts holding the CV joint to the flanges (without any roll pins) while the 914 CV joints only use 4 bolts and 2 roll pins?

As a follow up to this, has anyone drilled out the holes for the roll pins, and used a bolt?

just one person's experience

I put new type 1 joints (x4) on the racecar.
granted it might be an extreme environment
but with limited hours of use... 20?
I noticed much more wear than original joints

so this could be due to my application
but I am also harboring the belief that the type 1 (modified) joints do not hold up nearly as well as original specification joints used to.

I'm not a fan
I'm going to upgrade to 944 CV's and add real weight to the racecar in exchange for longevity.... and I hate adding weight!

I have the same opinion after about 4 years since replacement. MAYBE 10k Miles on them?

I haven't inspected them yet....just a mess I'd not get into at the moment.

Ran in to this problem also. grease thrown up on the underside of the trunk. just cleaned it off again. This winter I will clean them off good and put a bead of RTV on them and see how that works.

Anyone have any insight into the original question about why 914 CV’s have 2 roll pins while the CV’s on 944’s snd Bugs don’t?
