Just realized you still have the ABS rings on the front. SO needless to say you need to press the hub out of the knuckles to do the studs..

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys.

I played around with getting the spacing right. It turns out I definitely need a 10mm spacer in front. So, in the rear I'd like to do 15mm to bring all 4 corners flush. I'm just trying to decided what spacer and course of action is best at this point.

Ok, what do you guys think about these? Is Ichiba a decent/quality brand? I wanted to run a set of H&R spacers, but H&R doesn't make a 4 lug 10mm spacer.

15mm Wheel Spacers

Thanks, dude.

Quoting 89Patches:

Putting in ARP wheel studs should only take an hour or two depending how fast you work. The time consuming part it just taking the brakes apart. I have done this twice with my car.

Pulling in the studs in take maybe 10 mins to do all 20 (Or 16 in your case) No need to take your hubs apart to take the to get pressed in, That's just a waste of time and money. A breaker bar, jack stand, some oil for the stud, some washers (I used 6 bolt head stud washers 2 or 3 stacked)a hammer and a wheel nut. Like I said takes all of 10 minutes to pull in all the studs.

This is how I did my Galant, Mr2, my old Jeep and countless others I have done this for



BTW If you have the ABS rings on the front still this method won't work on the car!




Can you elaborate a little more? How do the studs clear the dust shields?

With those thicknesses, you can pick up the bolt on spacers and avoid new studs.

that is as narrow as you can get bolt on type due to the width of the nuts that bolt the spacer to your hub.

Well, they have these also. But they are a bit pricy: click

Pretty sure they are the same spacers pictured here:

that's a lot of money to spend for 2 spacers. I'd just get the bolt on spacers and call it good. You aren't gonna hurt anything by going a little bit wider.

10mm Bolt On Spacer

15mm Bolt On Spacer

Wow those are expensive wheel spacers For those prices you may as well install extended studs. I run 10mm spacers on the front of my MR2 and they only cost me $30 from Allstar performance, ARP extended studs (Front only) were $80 and open end wheel nuts were $15 for 25.

You over thinking about what god damn wheel spacers to get Get ARP extended studs and normal 10mm spacers and spend a day off installing them. At least this way your setup will be more proper...

Ichiba are not Japanese spacers. They are made in Taiwan. I deal direct with Ichiba if you need them. Sent you a message.



Great deal on BC coilovers. Hit me up. Whiteline dealer. Vibrant dealer.

I have the Project Kics spacers on my vr4. 10mm front and rear. They are the best, but are expensive.

Eh, yeah, I overthink things sometimes. I was under the impression though, that extended studs weren't the prefered method here. Are 15mm spacers in the rear on extended studs still in the safe zone? Lastly, the reason I'm not picking up one of the cheaper spacers is because they aren't hub centric.


Quoting Jon:

Yeah, but H&R doesn't make a 10mm 4 lug spacer for the Galant.

Agreed.

I got my spacers a while ago, but was waiting for a new wheel bearing and seals to come in the mail. I did the driver's side before the Shootout, so figured I might as well replace the passenger side too while I had the hub off the car.

I threw the spacers on and took the car for a drive. Even at 80 mph it felt nice and smooth, with no vibrations. The 3KGT brakes feel great, and the car's overall stance looks pretty good too. I want to bring the ride height up a bit, but other than that I happy with it. Good enough until I can get a set of wheels that fit better.

I should be all set to make the 2hr trip to East Coast MOD in NJ next weekend. I hope to see some of you guys there.

Here's what Mark was talking about in regard to the lug studs being different lengths.
(From Left to right: Extended rear stud, extended front stud, stock front stud, stock rear stud)


Rears


Fronts

Yeah, thanks Canada.

I did the rears just like you said, just pulled the calipers and banged the studs out.

The fronts had to come apart because of the ABS ring. I could have done them the same as the rears if it weren't for that. To be honest, I don't love the spacers. I'd rather swap in a set of wheels that fit the car better. But, this gets the job done for the time being. Thanks for the advice.

I got a few crappy cell phone pics of the G in its natural habitat...grocery gettin. I'm loving the new brakes and the wider stance. I can't believe how much better the car looks now that all four corners are flush.
