    Guys I can't help thinking this might be the wrong route to take. I've been changing some front end components this week and I've decided to fit Spec D front hubs instead (I also have a set of the legacy ones here).
    The Spec D has bolt on front bearings but has a considerably bigger bearing thatn the Legacy/hatch 100pcd hub. It retains reluctor type ABS sensors rather than Hall Effect, which a lot of you seem to be having an issue with due to the type of ECU in use. The hub only needs a small amount of machining to fit my earlier Struts and would be very easy to convert to 100PCD too.

    Thoughts ?

    Good top know Alyn The bearings are way bigger than those on the 100pcd hubs. I fitted them yesterday and very pleased with the end result.

    For reference, I fitted two good 'early' 100pcd hubs to the car last year, when I removed them at the weekend the bearings were shot to pieces

    I think it explains a certain handling characteristic the car has had LOL.

    Hi i like to now what you have to do the specD hubs to fit the classic srtuts and what do i have to do to the hubs to fit the 100pcd wheels ?
    And i have ap calipers on my type-r will it fit the specD hubs?
    i no i have to machine the ap bells but can you tell me what i need to do to fitt the specD hubs to the type-r .
    And how do you think about a adapter to change to 100pcd would this be save for a track car?

    Yes.
    Widetrack shafts are longer and post 2006 have different front inner CVs but the outer splines are all the same.

    there are a number of issues beyond the basic strut mounting mods required in that std bells, discs may not fit over the larger flange and also certain aftermarket brake brackets may not be designed to clear the larger knuckle

    later hubs are a 'bolt in' bearing pack...............

    for reference we can offer modified wide-track hubs and bearing packs as a bolt on option for earlier suspension yokes/5x100 fitment with the added bonus they add no wight penalty

    5x100 Front Wheel bearings and Heavy Track use

    This conversion is on the car just over a year now.
    It's working perfectly including the abs aspect which clearly was questionable.
    No issues whatsoever, no pad knock back on track .

    Great steering feel due to the roll centre change .

    Also a set of front discs used from new to minimum thickness with runout spec below 0.02 mm when being removed .

    Great option for anyone plagued by wheel bearing problems
