Not all axles are the same.
The SWB van had 3 versions, the maxi I believe had the same.
There are different widths, shapes and hub fixings.

You can fit a different one and make it work without any modifications. That said, you may run into problems if you've got big wheels or run really low if you end up fitting a different axle.

The easiest and most accurate way is to contact a VW commercial parts dept. They will use your chassis number to confirm exactly what should be fitted to your Caddy.
