 Gleichlauf-Verschiebegelenk Explanation:double offset joint = cosntant velocity slip joint = Gleichlauf-Verschiebegelenk, Gleichlauf-Topfgelenk ("inboard joint" used when referring to the inner joint of a driveshaft of a fwd vehicle), cf. constant volocity joint, constant velocity fixed joint constant volocity joint = CB-joint = homokinetic joint = Gleichlaufgelenk (universal joint in which the output shaft rotates at constant angular volocity wiht no cyclic variations, given a constant input shaft speed. Almost universally used in fwd drive shafts, but also in jointed shafts requring minor diffraction angles) constant velocity fixed joint = outboard (universal) joint = Birfield joint = Gleichlauf-Festgelenk ("output" joint used when referring to the outer joint of a driveschaft of a fwd vehicle) fwd = forward wheel drive = Frontantrieb Quelle: Schmitt, Fachwörterbuch Kfz-Technik

Nach genauer Betrachtung würde mir \"doppeltes Achsaußengelenk\" aber fast noch besser gefallen!

neutral  Herbert Fipke: Vorsicht! Das gemeinte Gelenk sitzt NICHT am Rad, sondern am Differential! Außengelenk wäre das Gelenk am Rad.

Doppelgelenk mit Freilaufring

Explanation:
Das "double offset joint" wird weiter unten im Subaru-Dokument auch "shudderless free-ring tripod joint" genannt. Deswegen mein Vorschlag:
Doppelgelenk mit Freilaufring.

agree  Herbert Fipke: möglicherweise ergänzend "Doppelschubgelenk"

-> ja, kann man vielleicht sagen - aber du siehst an meinem Confidence level, dass ich auch ein bischen schwimme.... vielleicht genügt sogar: homokinetisches Doppelgelenk

Gleichlauf-Verschiebegelenk

Explanation:
double offset joint = cosntant velocity slip joint = Gleichlauf-Verschiebegelenk, Gleichlauf-Topfgelenk
("inboard joint" used when referring to the inner joint of a driveshaft of a fwd vehicle), cf. constant volocity joint, constant velocity fixed joint

constant volocity joint = CB-joint = homokinetic joint = Gleichlaufgelenk (universal joint in which the output shaft rotates at constant angular volocity wiht no cyclic variations, given a constant input shaft speed. Almost universally used in fwd drive shafts, but also in jointed shafts requring minor diffraction angles)

constant velocity fixed joint = outboard (universal) joint = Birfield joint = Gleichlauf-Festgelenk ("output" joint used when referring to the outer joint of a driveschaft of a fwd vehicle)

fwd = forward wheel drive = Frontantrieb
