Hey guys

my mate is rebuilding a EF XR8 motor is sorted but he wants to know about suspension upgrades,
he wants BA Stud pattern (not sure why but its what he wants)

is there a way or a product that can change the stud pattern to BA as he will be doing break upgrade and suspension anyway. cost is not really a bother as 20k is his budget for this car

Stud pattern is the same, offset is different. It can be changed using an aftermarket brake and upright conversion or just do it the bodgey way and use spacers.

+1 on the offset being different but not the stud pattern, if he does the brake upgrade it changes the offset to au onwards

we dont mind changing the whole suspension if we have to as he has some 19 inch original dark agents that he wants to put on the car when it is done.

just need to know what has to be done to make it possible and reliable, ie no spacers
