    5 Stud Conversion

    i went to do my 308mm 5 stud conversion day, got all the old stuff off, put my new 5 stud set up on to fit and the cv joint is too small for the hub

    i got the set up off a zafira b and im fitting it to my mk4 1.6 16v

    any ideas what parts i need to make them fit?

    I always believed the CV was the same size

    How much smaller is it in comparison?
