Hi all

Yes I have try to post in the 5 stud conversion thread but it will not let me.

On the rear of a s13 can you uses R33 GTR hubs and backing plates ?

Or do only the R32 hubs and backing plates fit ?

If you can uses R33 GTR is there any think i need to know to get it to fit?


Cheers

as far as i know you can't use the GTR hubs as the axles/shafts are bigger than the standard silvia ones.

R33 GTR hubs definetly DO NOT fit s13-s15 half shafts. The half Shafts in an r33 GTR are larger. I found this out first hand AFTER I installed r33gtr rear hubs on my 180. The backing plates from an r33gtr DO fit s13-s15s however, and the r33 GTR handbrake gear is the same r33 gtst...
