Extended front wheel studs.

Post by BALDYMONSTER »

Yes I’ve done a search on here and it would appear that the rear studs are no different to the front studs despite what sellers on eBay say.

I can’t find any extended front wheel studs anywhere so can anyone absolutley confirm that the rear extended studs WILL fit on the front hubs.

These coilovers have become a real pain in the "censored" tbh and reminded me why I said I’d never use coilovers again. More hassle than they’re worth. Sorry, just had to rant about the fecking things.

The front and rear split size on the Mk2 are the same, the only difference is the length.
Rears are approx 5mm longer.

Worth noting that the splines on these aren't an exact fit, I've tried the lot of them in the last couple of months and they are all the same type.

The spline diameter is fine but the number of splines is way off, have about twice as many as standard so not really a like for like replacement and tbh after many months of looking you can't get a direct fit extended stud (in the uk at least.)

They will go but you need to force them.

They went in with a fair bit of persuasion.

At least the wheels will stay on now I suppose.

Just need to find a turbo for it or get my one refurbed now.

I'd bite the bullet and get it refurbed tbh, you could try to find a "good used" one but could easily end up in the same boat in a years time. Short term pain for long term gain.
