Hub face to backing plate dimensions

Recommended Posts

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.
