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

ive got gtst rear calipers. im planning on buying new discs all round..

My car for some reason has vented discs on the back and their shagged :/ there discontinued and nissan said they could have them made up but will be 300 pounds plus 4-6 weeks delivery from japan so opted for this route instead

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

Sod changing the hubs just drill the GTS-T 5 stud brake disc's to 4 stud & fit the GTS-T callipers= Job done in 20 Minutes :)
Yeah cos just drilling loads of holes in the disc face isn't dangerous at all!!!

i wanted the hubs more so for wheel choice too. I don't really know whether it is safe or not but to be honest the thought had not crossed my mind. On a car i intend to keep for a while i wanted it done properly :) boost power shall be next

Steve,

Shhhh!!

Whatever you do don't tell Toyota, then... They love drilling their discs- here are some Piranha ones for my Soarer. The stock Toyota discs have the hundreds of holes too.



Its a real pain when you're tired to find the right holes to line up, LOL!
