Question hub conversion question :)

Midway through purchasing parts for my hub conversion on my r33 gts,

I have bought

Gts-t Calipers
Front hubs
Wheels


Just woundering whether i just need the rear hub assembly (just the hub with bearing) or whether i need the backplate and everything else with it?

Cheers

the hubs fit direct ,discs will need drilling to suit unless you have gtst discs/calipers then the dust plate things are smaller but i just removed mine

just got a website up which has all the information on it. looks like mine is a factory type s model.

I spoke to a few seperate suppliers and they all came back with the same thing. discontinued and they could all get them from nissan so went there direct for best price.

Thats ok though because im looking at putting an rb20det in next year so will already have the brakes done seeing as i have bought half the stuff i am committing to it, Cheers though will be buying the disks through conceptua

just changed my front calipers on my rb20e to the 2.5gts ones and the discs are bigger and had to remove the backplates 10mm approx difference in size on the discs.
