  1. I have an EA81 hardtop coupe that is fwd, and my front wheels are shot, as well as having bald tires. I have a pair of 5 lug wheels just sitting around, so i was wondering if it was possible to convert the rear to a 5 lug. It has drum brakes in the rear. Plus, I think that it would be pretty sweet.
  2. I have a 1980 gl and i've been wondering about doing a 5 lug conversion. I really just want to know if i can use parts off of a gl10
  3. Hi all I've been doing lots of reading on 5 lug conversions. I have some understanding of what is needed. I have most of what I need but there is one measurement that would help Can anyone tell me the distance from the outer face of an XT6 hub to the outer face of the backing plate (EJ) when the axle nut is tight and backing plate is fixed. Or from the hub outer face to the mounting position for the backing plate on the trailing arm. If the way i described makes no sense please ask. I did spend some time at a wreckers some distance away but after I got home i found my calipers, nice old set with dial.. were not working ... the dial was slipping randomly. Thank
  4. Hi there folks. I have been absent from the forums (and from my shop) for a few months due to 84 hour work weeks. Yikes! They're finally moving my hours back enough that I'm starting some of my planned summer projects on my BRAT. Now I've been researching all afternoon for a thread anywhere on the Internet and only found one in which a guy upgraded his subaru brat hubs to a modern subaru 5 lug. My question is, what all HAS to be changed to get the new hubs? I know I'll need new rotors and brake assembly but can I keep the same struts and tierod and such? I'm looking for cost effectiveness but I will change anything that makes sense to. Thanks in advance! Ratch
