Hi guys,

I just wanted to know what was involved in changing over to a Au stud pattern from EL?
I am wanting to install a particular wheel which will not fit the EL unless I install hub adapters which I do not wish to do.

Has anyone done this before? And what sort of cost am I looking at?

Where in Melbourne is the best place to do such a conversion?

AU stud pattern is the same. Its the offset that's different.
The rear isn't too hard. Fit an AU diff. Terrorist ghia has done the same.
Front is a different kettle of fish. Easiest option would be to fit a cebco big brake kit or the likes.
There is no easy or cheap way to do the front. Many have tried and failed.
A few have had success but it was a lot of thinking and work.

Based on that fact my Mum is the best around!

With the diff, get a 3.08 from a Forte or a Futura and set it up with Gears and a LSD. trying to find a diff with 3.45 LSD Live axle is hard.
