u MIGHT be able to put the AU uprights on
but then u need to change the rear diff over as well

just look around for E series rims there are heaps of them

even better buy an AU :)

Thats a joke right?


There are a couple of options - some people have done it - transfered the AU brakes and suspension front and rear in order to gain IRS. A lot of custom work and a lot of effort I'd imagine.

I've been told Cresent Motorsports do a brake package using some AU parts.

The guy on eBay who sells brake upgrade kits was ment to have a brake upgrade kit finalised mid-January that gives AU offset on the front.

There's also the Cebco brake upgrade kit - but I think that still utilises a spacer...

The last 3 would only give you AU onwards offset on the front, they wouldn't alter the rear.

All up hub adapters are by far the easiest and cheapest option.

Not even gunna buy into the hub adaptor debate. It's been flogged to death on here before. :P I went through the same and searched high and low for pre-au wheels and end up buying a set from this guy:-
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... K:AU:LISTG
Check out his website and gallery. Has a few pre-au wheels to choose from in either rim only or wheel and tyre packages. The guy is also very easy to communicate with and if you tell him what you are looking for, you will find his advise very helpful. :D
