BC5 RS/RA 6 speed dccd + 5x114.3 hub swap

Recommended Posts

Hi all so a good mate of mine has just bought a full version 9 drivetrain swap for his RS-RA. Looking for abit of info on weather the hubs will just be a direct bolt on swap and weather or not an auto drive shaft will work with the 6 speed or will we need to shorten the shaft? I know the diff flange is different on the later 6 speeds so can i also just swap the r160 flange onto the r180? Also i know with my bl5, to swap a r180 diff into that i need an aluminum (spec b) diff cradle. Is there any specific cradle that we will need? Cheers.

Yes, but you WILL need adjustable suspension to suit the BC5 that have a lower clevis that suits the front hubs wider mounting point. That is a non-negotiable. 

 

aka BC5 struts, and V9/10 STi lower clevis.

There are drive shafts that fit, I don't know exactly which one. @RaKid Knows as he's done it recently.

Yes, you can do this.

General rule of thumb is auto driveshaft from the same chassis fits, but other shafts may also fit. I can tell you a be5 auto driveshaft does not fit bc5 with 6sp.

Cheers guys. Yea i definitely did mean an auto bc driveshaft, okay so ill have to let him know that he will need to find some version 9 hub shock perchs. Already has tein adjustables so will need to change the mount. Is this specific for front only? Or rear also? Cheers.

Best thing to do is match at all times.
