You can get the parts from a 1g AWD. I have also seen a few members list the entire swap for sale in the classifieds. There are part lists in some of these threads as well as instructions on how to complete the swap. 5 Lug Swap 5 Lug Swap with ABS

If you do not have the desire, experience or tools to do the swap to 5 lug DSM parts you could always use an adapter plate such as this: click

The pictures on that posting are not accurate but the item description is.

A legitimate thread with a legitimate question ruined yet again by thread-jackers.

To keep the ABS you should be able to knock the tone ring off of the GVR4 spindle and press it onto the DSM spindle.

I do not believe my post count or join date should have anything to do with the ridiculous amount of thread jacking that takes place on this forum. This is not the only DSM/GVR4/CSM forum that I am a member of. This is, however, the forum that I frequent the least due to the lack of proper moderation.

I also think a legitimate reply should have legitimate grammar: "Legitimate threads have legitimate titles with proper spelling." There is no need for the comas.

I am also fairly certain that by using the search function you would not find an answer to this question that is anything like what I suggested. You would only find information regarding how to obtain 5 lug hubs and how to swap them with the 4 lug hubs.

your ebay link is completely idiotic. Wheel adapters 'work' but there's a much more effective manner available. Telling people to cut corners is real helpful...?

Yes it is helpful for someone that does not have the experience, tools, or desire to disassemble their drivetrain. The link to the eBay item was a means to show the original poster what I was referring to. It is neither cutting corners nor idiotic to use wheel adapters.

I think the Mods on this site are pretty badass! Also one of most knowledgable and informational, not to mention intertaining forums I've been on.

I don't consider the 5-lug swap difficult...if you can't figure it out from the threads here + the VFAQ, then you probably shouldn't own a GVR4.

And you don't have to "disassemble" your drivetrain - so I'm not sure what that comment was about, maybe I have a different idea of what it means to "disassemble" the drivetrain than you do though.

And lastly, yes - using wheel adaptors is both cutting corners, and idiotic...particularly so when the proper way to do things is as simple as it is.

And the mods here are awesome.

I do not consider it difficult either. But this is your opinion and is an assumption that the OP has the experience and skill that you must possess in vast quantities. Anyone can own a GVR4; mechanical aptitude is not necessary in a country full of other people that are mechincally gifted, such as yourself.

Quoting brandonechols:

"And you don't have to "disassemble" your drivetrain - so I'm not sure what that comment was about, maybe I have a different idea of what it means to "disassemble" the drivetrain than you do though."



You must certainly have a different idea as to what "disassembling" a drivetrain could entail. By removing the rims and tires you have affectively disassembled the drivetrain. By removing the spindles and hubs you have further disassembled the drivetrain. I personally would remove the CVs to have more room to work so that would require even further disassembly of the drivetrain.

Quoting brandonechols:

"And lastly, yes - using wheel adaptors is both cutting corners, and idiotic...particularly so when the proper way to do things is as simple as it is."



Again you voice your opinion as fact regarding the procedure required to perform this swap and the usage of wheel adaptors. Just because you say something does not mean it is absolutely correct.

Quoting brandonechols:

"And the mods here are awesome."



I fully agree that they are knowledgable and dedicated to these vehicles. The fact that this thread is still not locked and continues to be a debate about inconsequential topics that do not pertain to the original question of the thread speaks of the improper moderation to which I referred.

I think this is the comment that took this thread off topic...

This is a smaller comunity that doesn't relie on Mods to be our Mommy's. With that said, we can poke and make fun and solve stupid disputes all we want. When things get out of hand and peoples feelings start to get hurt, then the mods will step in. This isn't DSMTuners where when a thread goes off topic it turns into a trans continental brawl. With that said, it is only Alpha Male and CSM shaun that have this thread jacked. One member pointed out the grammar error, everyone laughed at it, I put up a funny comment. You two are the only ones keeping a thread that has been answered before your silly argument going. Me too since I typed this rant...

Nuf Said The Mods ROCK here!!!
