I am fitting an ABF with original gearbox (02A) to a 1986 MK1 Caddy and have purchased some converstion driveshafts from eBay... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MK1-GOLF-...72.m2749.l2649

I assume they are the same as the late mk1 100mm cabrio driveshafts everyone says are needed.

I have taken 1-2mm off the caddy hubs as recommended and the N/S driveshaft fits perfectly, however the O/S is 5mm off the ball joint (too long). Has anyone has experience of this or has the measurements that the N/S driveshafts should be from end to end so I can check they are correct.

I have loosened the engine mounts and tightened the bolt on the driveshafts to try and pull it in but no success.

Any ideas would be appreciated! Cheers
