G'day guys,
I have put EA82 steering and control arms in the Wonder Brumby, subsequently my rear track is 3" narrower than my front.

I was thinking of putting 1.5" spacers on each rear hub to correct it.

Our 4 stud pattern is 4 x 100mm, am I correct?

Thanks,
Matt

4X140mm

I have run spacers on my offroad Brat. They work but I still don't really like them.

Thanks Qman,

Why don't you like them?
Extra stress on bearings?

Depending on the wheels and tires you are running it can add stresses to the bearings. When I did the solid rear axle swap into my BRAT I had to add 2 1/2" per side to match the Subaru track.

I didn't have any issues but, I just didn't like running them. Many people are using them to correct tracking issues. Just my preference.
