    5 Studing my car

    I'm going to 5 stud my car, its a 2000 1.8 Sxi (non ABS) with rear disks.

    Can I get away with just swaping the hubs and brakes? Or will I need a new rear beam?

    What do I do about the fact that the 5 stud car had ABS, is it a simple case of just not plugging it in?


    So I'll need...

    New front hubs...

    New rear hubs

    Front brakes (disks, pads, callipers, and slider bits)

    Rear brakes and disks (Will my old callipers and pads fit or are 5 stud rears bigger?)

    New Wheels and more bolts

    I'll prob buy new front hubs, as i'll be getting nice new big brakes for the front, Will I need any bias valves due to the new bigger front brakes?

    Cheers for any information! I'll do a how too once its done!
