Re: Hub Project to make us wheel options (5/100 to 114.3)

Sun Feb 26, 2012 3:30 am

Above, he says above the rav4 uses a different rear setup as far as bearings go. It also uses a drum rear, so I would not want its rear brakes.

The front spindle can bolt up, but you need a rav4 ball joint since the bolt length is longer. I am stil deciding what to do. I need to take some measurements of the tie rod hole. The rav4 has a shorter turn to lock, but I want to make sure it isn't due to the rack or the tie rod arm.

I'm working on this as we speak, I'm doing it using 185 spindle, with rav4 hubs hopefully. I'll see soon enough. If I can come up with multipul setups I will be posting what I find in a new post (if aloud)

I've got several brembo calipers from different imports, exp. Acura, porsche, st205, evo. And other calipers I picked up along the way.

Everything will hopefully be well documented....if I get too grease.....i stop writing and picture taking is all. hopefuly wife can help soon.

Look forward to it. No problem with you making a new thread. Just put it in the faq, and it should be good.

And so it begins....working on rears as well actually, you will be surprised:
this is a supra rotor from 96tt, hub from 97 rav4.

i currently dont have any pictures YET, and it opened a rotor option which is amazing if you use the 205 rears....

im just waiting on my rotor to show on monday hopefully.

could follow it here

soooooooooooooo, been looking stuff up for over 5 stight hours to rethink the rear hub idea i did have, and well, i wouldnt say stumbled upon what i found. ive order what apears by all the specs through multipul supliers and such, from hub, bearing and the rotor to still work with the 205 brakes with little to no modification.
-jr

im going to order first and show later.


:shoots: i had a entire rear 205 hub setup i could have tested this on last year....until i moved i threw it all away. if anyone has a rear end they want to sell so i dont want to take mine off...(yet).

Looking forward to seeing your results.

Agree with CMS, if anyone comes up with a proven method for front or rear just drop it in the FAQ section. There's likely more than one way to skin a cat here.

Good luck!

Using stock bearings front and rear, hub is good front, rotor as well....i don't have wheels to test:cry: also ordered rear hubs.

why?
You could buy the 06 Sti rotors cause same specs, just different lug pattern.

And that's my plan :-)

The center bore is too small for the sti rotors. If you get 2 piece then you can get the center bore machined out to fit the new hub. In that case sti rotors are a good choice.

The porsche brake caliper brackets sold on this site come with spacer rings for the STI rotors.

Which is meant for a 185 hub. If you switch to the rav4 hub then it is 62mm where the sti is 56.1. Alltrac is 54.1. So to use sti rotors on the rav4 5x114 hub, the hub bore needs to be enlarged.
