To share some some info to you guys.
Here by a pictorial on how to swap to 4x100
On this site is already a tutorial on how to do it,BUT I dont like this one
http://www.1stgencivic.com/world/c1zr/m ... hp?t=12530
Why is it that i dont like this one,I'v done it.But took it of after riding it and realignment .
Due to the fact that you use the lower control arm and 2nd gen hub ,your wheel span wil change big,it will widen out a lott!!
Now you will not be able to put wider wheels on your car.Your positive camber is still there .So steering is BAD.
This is what i recomment,this is what I think is best.
You can give reply's if you think I am not right,I dont mind
What do you need:
1st gen knuckles
1st gen brake callipers
2nd gen disk brake
2nd gen hub(4x100)
Wheel bearing (1st or 2nd gen ,both will fit)
2nd gen 80/83 pinion or modify the 1st gen item(shown later)
This is what a 2nd gen hub looks like with dust seal of 1st gen on.
1st gen dust seal on 2nd gen hub
1st gen hub with 2nd gen seal and visa versa
So now you know its fits!!
2nd gen knuckle and 1st gen knuckle
1st gen and 2nd gen bearings,both wil fit in 1st or 2nd gen knuckle!
Now beforen pressing it all together ,you need to shorten the bolt heads of the dust seal.When the 1st gen hub is fitted on the knuckle you got clearance couse its 4x120,so more space.
The 2nd gen is 4x100,so 20mm less clearance.
Grind of the bold heads,that is the easy way
Than put it al together,2nd gen hub in 1st gen knuckle
Than put 2nd gen disk brake on,and 1st gen brake callipers.
Now you are almost done
The pinion head of the 1st gen will not fit the hub,the splines run all the way on 2nd gen hubs,1st gens run 2/3 the way.
So you need to swap the pinion head to 2nd gen 80/83 on your axle.
I like it easy,1 just put my pinion on my lathe,and made more room on the spline track.Just made it a bit deeper,so the splines of the hub wil slide further on de pinion head.
I even made the swap better:
what i used
1st gen knuckles
2nd gen hub
2nd gen bearing
