COMPLETE "BOLT-ON" 5-LUG CONVERSION SYSTEM

I've put together a system based upon solving the problems most people would have with converting the rear of a 914 to the Porsche 130mm 5-lug spacing.

Most people don't have access to a press or the tools needed to get bushings and bearings in and out. This makes the current 5-lug kits that are on the market rather difficult for the average home mechanic to install. The front conversion can be as simple as bolting on a 911 suspension, literally, a bolt on application. Why not the rears?

This is where the "Rear 5-lug System" comes into play. The process:

1. A clean and straight set of core control arms is stripped and bead blasted to bare metal. Bushings and bearings are pressed out.

2. The bare control arms get coated with 2 coats of "Zero-Rust" protective paint.

3. New bushings and bearings get installed.

4. A set of core hubs gets drilled to 130mm 5-lug spacing. A set of custom ring bosses are machined to go under the additional 4 studs to strengthen the mounting surface and bring them up to the factory 11mm boss height. New studs are pressed in and each ring boss gets tacked (MIG welded) on to the hub. Then they're coated with 4 coats of enamel.

5. The 5-lug hubs get pulled into the new control arm bearings and they're ready to ship to you.

6. You simply bolt on the new 5-lug control arms and put your cores in the box and ship them back.

Cost is $395.00 plus cores and shipping to and from 84092. Shipping weight is 50lbs and can be figured by using this site: USPS Shipping Calculator
