Gtr Diff,shafts & Hubs Into S13/180Sx? Maintaining 4 stud?

Recommended Posts

Ok guys doing gtr diff,shafts & hubs into my s13/180sx I was wondering if there is anyway of maintaining 4 stud? Need to run gtr hubs as the shafts are larger then the s13/180 ones.

I already have 4 stud wheels & didn't really want to search around for 5 stud wheels the same as I already have.

 

Cheers

Only way i can think of:

 

Press hub off carrier,

Knock out wheel bearing

Knock out wheel studs,

Fill stud holes with weld,

Lather front down flat,

Drill holes for 4 studs,

Machine flats on rear side of hubs where the studs sit against,

Press in new bearing,

Press assembly back onto carrier

Would the holes that are been filled be strong when redrilling to 4 stud as I guess afew new holes are going to come close to the old ones?

Sorry, 1 would be re-used and not needed to be filled. Welding shoud be fine coz the back of the stud will be pressing against original metal in the hub, not the welded part
