    The fronts will work. The hub facing is 6mm outboard from the stock MK2.

    It leaves the rear still at issue.

    Custom made rear spindles would be $300 each, in quantity.

    A custom rear setup, utilizing the MK3 rear hub and custom
    rear spindle and mount, but the cost ends up nearly the same.

    I'm in.

    I guess this means the 16X8 +18 will fit as well as the 16X7 +18 wheels in the front. Nice!

    Just to let you know I was quoted a price of AU$429 (US$330)/axle for '84-'85 Crown axle stubs. Brand new from Japan to Australia. I wonder if we could order the part here in North America and the price? These work with the stock MKII rear calipers.

    I just want to make sure I've read everything correctly.

    The hub will work fine, and use a MKII oil seal. does this also include mounting the brakes? MKII or Conquest/startion brakes?

    we would use +14 offset wheels then without moving the wheels in or out? that would give us a bit wider choice of rims on top of the 5 lug?

    Rob - still learning this whole math thing....

    Here's a link to the current thread of Toymods Forums in Australia for those that haven't seen it yet.

    http://forums.toymods.org.au/index.p...7263825f78cfb2

    MS65 fronts and MS123 rears. Also goes on to discuss a BBK, front setup is quite easy, difficulties have been run into on the rears.

    The brakes will have to be figured out once the hubs are mounted. Stock MKII discs won't mount on the Starion hubs, see the above diagram. I'm hoping to use the Z32 setup.

    You could use the Starion wheels no problem, or find others with the correct offset. Larger selection of wheels in 5X114.3 than 4X114.3.

    Those wheels would look beautiful.

    FWIW I scored a pair of MS123 Crown rear hubs yesterday... the wrecking yard is going to pull them out during the week (they have to take out the rear trailing arms, you need a press to get the hubs off) and I should have them next weekend. AU$165 for the pair, not too bad! My plan is to use the stock Mk2 rotors, redrilled of course. Apparently the Crown rotors are slightly different and I'm not sure if that will cause issues, so that's why I'm going this way.

    I wish we had those Starions in Aus! I'm still looking for MS65 hubs for the front end, but I've discovered they're pretty rare over here. As soon as I find some my conversion will be underway; the new rims arrive soon (5-stud) so I want to fit them as soon as possible!

    I hope that means there are tonnes around?

    I need to score some parts... or grab a whole car if I can find a dead one for under $500. Worst comes to worst I'll order the parts new from Mitsubishi.

    How does this look?
