    Hey 289Hilux, can you give any more details on the hubs? I tried emailing Mr Spares on E-Bay and haven't gotten a reply.

    Hey. It could well do. You may be able to fit Hilux spindels to you van.
    Check the part no for the ball joints, tie rods etc. The first place I would start is the wheel bearings. If they are the same as Hilux then it may be a easy upgrade. Measure the caliper mounting points on the spindel.and make some comparisons. Go to a wreckers and ask to look at some different models, you may get lucky.

    Good luck with the conversion, It is never aesy to try something different.

    do you have part numbers for the hilux ball joints, tie rods etc? whats the advantage of using the r 33 calipers ove the AUII CALIPERS?

    from looking in my hiace service manual the front brkes look the same a the hilux one pictured.

    Hafa Adai (Hello) from Guam!
    289hilux,

    Can we get a part number or description for the hubs & rotors you purchased on the ebay site. Mr Spares site make no references to our applications.

    I'd hate to guess @ $299 a pop (not including shipping), but I'm betting its the "HOLDEN RODEO ADAPTOR HUBS TO 5 STUD BRAKES / WHEELS". He's got 3 adapter hubs listed. Were the ones you got custom made? The shops seems really ready to do custom work.

    Can you confirm hubs, rotors, & possibly pads? How did those "dustless Bendix" pads work out?

    Thanks

    I did my order by phone an asked for RN85 billet hubs. They were about $320 delivered to Sydney. I'm not at home for a while so I can't check the receipt to see just what they were.

    Hey. They will fit no probs. I run EA 15x7 Auscar Rims some time and usualy run 15x8 Micky Thompsons deep dish.

    Runnig the Ford style ofset is best for clearance at the front of the caliper. See the pic if you run the ofset outwards there will be tons of room.



    Cheers. Hope it all goes well.

    Hi guys, im having some dramas. i bought the rotors and billet hubs from old mate on ebay (same guy 289 used) but i dont think thats where the problem lies.
    I got some calipers of a guy in perth who said they were r32 gtr calipers, but im thinking they are only r32gtst as they hit the disc (is definately a 296mm disc), and also dont line up to the mounting holes as a result.
    here a couple of pics?

    Hey Millsi.

    They look like the wrong callipers. You need the smooth ones.

    Will they fit up to the stub axle with out the rotor in place?
    Is the gap wide enough to clear the rotor. Some of the callipers wont have clearance for the width of the BA rotor.



    Cheers Richard.
    Hope you can return the callipers!

    Short mounting legs mean GTS-T, demand your money back.
