6 lug hub and break issues, 87 gl wagon

Recommended Posts

I have 6 lug hubs on my 87 gl wagon. I’d like to install new calipers, rotors, breaks but I don’t quite know where to begin. How would I find out what kind of hubs I have and the proper parts to buy?

If by hubs you are referring to the wheels, my guess is everything else will be stock Subaru stuff. 

 

Edit:  If the curent calipers also contain the E-brake, then everything other than the wheels are stock.

SOP for the 6-lug conversion is just to redrill the hub. So the brake parts are not changed. Should be standard EA82 parts.

Brakes are inboard from the hubs, (which is not typical), so the rotor bolts to the backside of the hub instead of slipping over the studs, so it shouldn't matter if the hub has been modified for 6-bolts.
