Part 3: Hub Selection for 2 pot rears

Recommended Posts

the only thing to watch is that the v3 sti R and RA have solid rear rotors, they are unique like the hubs and they only take the one type of rotor, and its toootaly different from any other R180 rear end.

Same goes for the single pot sliders, they are the only type that have the narrow (from memory) bolt spacing.

TL:DR get the whole set up or dont bother.

Hub Selection for 2 pot Rears – for a V1-6 GC/GF

Hubs that CAN be used for 2 pot rear conversion on an R160 car ONLY.

Fortunately for v7/8 WRX (not considering v9+ due to PCD change) [/u]

have r160 hubs AND they have the narrow bolt spacing (these also come with 2 pot rears from factory).

Also worth noting in this selection process.. the r160/80 hub selection will determine the handbrake shoe diameter. This affects which rotor you chose for 2 pot rears:

For a r180 based set up you pick a rotor normally for a v4/6 STI RA or R.

For a r160 based set up you pick a rotor normally for a V7/8 WRX (not STI).

OK think I understand this now

I was just told that fitting newage (Version 8) hubs to a Classic GC8 throws the camber out of whack and I'd need some Whiteline camber  adjustment bolts to rectify this.
Can anyone verify?

I have them on my GC8, camber is fine -1.5 degrees. 

 

The GD sedan struts are what causes the camber change.
