Disc hubs

I changed my front spindles from drum to disc. Has that changed my backspace requirement? I may wind up with wheels for the car before I get fenders hung on it and hopefully will avoid a surprise.

Not to hijack the thread but what about the rears? If you go to 4-wheel discs, will the rear move out 1/4" as well? Is that because of that 3-hole bracket?

Re: Disc hubs

Most guys find the difference in the new rotors bearing depths but as mentioned , its usually not much.

Re: Disc hubs

With the car in the shop I have little to do other than obsess over details. After I get it back I will soon be in the position of having to make something fit in the back which leads right into what fits in the front. Not a problem if you are close to stock but it's an issue with stagger. I fit my front end out with a C-5 conversion 12 years ago and then left it sit never looking into whether or not the change affected my offset. Depending on the wheels looked at a quarter inch can be just too far. More stuff to sweat over.
