ea82 5 bolt conversion ?

could be user error
What is involved in converting an ea82 to the current
5 bolt pattern?

Rotor and Hub assembly
Lots of brake line. (I believe you should get two metal pieces and two soft pieces per side.)
Calipers (Unless you already have rear discs).
The easy answer is everything from the tranny out. I didn't understand this until I looked at an XT6. Things are different.
Axels (The hole in the hub is different, therefore different axle)
Lower suspension arm
Strut (Might be obvious here but unless you already have air shocks you will need regular struts. My donor car had air, I had to find regular)
Brake line (Easier to just get it as it is threaded through the strut)
Tie rod end

I would hope my comments sound familiar. I used the list you sent me to get my parts and used it to create the post. Just so you could rest your fingers.

So either some XT6's have 14mm front bolts or some EA82's have 17mm front ends.

Mine was of the two wheel drive variety. Just drilled the crossmember out and went at it. Expect the struts too be shorter from the XT6. drops the car 1 1/2 to 2" in the front. This is from my experience. Outcomes may vary.

Its the strangest thing... The FWD front end parts we got for Hondasucks had 17MM bolts where the arms attach to the cross member. I checked a 4WD... same 17mm size... neither fit in the 14mm front end of his turbowagon
yeah its really weird. We're thinking about modifying the crossmember so it'll fit. Can't think of anything else to do:brolleye:
