    5 Stud Conversion and New Wheels

    Hey Guys,

    Was toying with the idea of Converting the 4 Stud on my 2001 SXi astra to 5 stud so i could fit a set of Audi RS4 Wheels but as this is the place to ask what sort of work is involved and what would the cost of this be roughly? Cheers Guys.

    Done this swap recently on my mk4 Van.

    i swapped front knuckles with hubs, discs, carriers and calipers (straight swap)

    and swapped the whole rear axle as i was going from drums to discs. swapped handbrake cables aswell. it was fairly straight forward, would recommend having a mate to help with the rear axle though

    phone a few local scrap dealers, tell them what you want. i wouldn't pay any more than £200 for the lot though.

    check to see how much life there is in the pads and discs, use that o get your price down

    hope this helps mate

    bring on the audi wheels
