Mike

pretty sure the 5 Stud hub presses in to the Bearing of the 4 Stud...

I think they share the same bearing.. so you should be able to just press it in throw the CV in and away you go..

and the back as you know the Disc is the Hub...

This is true... re-drill or buy 5 stud rear discs, while the front hubs from a early? mk3 will press into the mk2 hub carriers! They share the same bearing as stated. by keeping the mk2 subframe you lose the ability to go wide track which requires more parts... arms, steering arms etc

Yes they press in but you cant get any disc that will work.

the early 5x100 Mk3s are basically the same set hub/caliper up as the late 4x100 Mk2s, hence the 280mm VR6 caliper/carrier fitting on the G60/Rallye 280mm 4x100 discs and vice versa.

The Ex-Tyz Grey mk2 that i wrecked had 5 stud conversion without being Wide Track.. (front and rear)
