Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - 8/4/13 Brake Duct/Ram Intake

normally the adapters come with a set of lugs to use on the adapter and you use your regular/stock/aftermarket lugs on the wheel as you would normally, so the aftermarket lugs shouldn't be an issue...

Yeah I bought the adapters used on NASIOC and they did not come with any lugs, oops. I used the stock lugs on my 2.5i to hold the adapters to the rotor then ordered aftermarket lugs to hold the wheels to the adapters.

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - 8/14/13 Wheel Spacers Installed!

Got my new spacers in! Originally I ordered a set of used Ichiba V2 spacer adapters, but I was not satisfied with their fit. The main issue was that the outer diameter of the spacer was about 0.25" smaller than that of the wheel mating surface, so the wheel hung over the edge of the spacer. This may have been "OK", and many people run those spacers, but it just wasn't good enough for me.

So I found wheeladapters.com and called them up and ordered a set from them. It was just a little more expensive than ordering a brand new set of Ichiba spacers, but they are worth it! These are custom machined to each customers specifications. I got a set of 1" thick spacer adapters with (what I call) the correct outer diameter. These are one solid piece of aluminum (Ichiba's were two pieces) and are hub and wheel centric.

These spacers do an amazing job of bringing my stock BBS wheels flush with the fenders, it looks great! As a side note, I am running JDM Pink springs and RCE lowernig camber plates in the front. I did not need to modify the fenders at all, but if I was much lower, I would need to.

Spacers look great man. I just got mine on with the Gorilla lugs I ordered from Amazon, I love how flush the wheels are but I need to raise the rear coilovers up a little, wheel is rubbing on the fender; a good roll and pull wouldn't hurt either.

I'm thinking I need to get a set of camber bolts for the rear. What ones did you order? I've seen plenty out there and I'm not sure which ones are legit.

I've never seen camber plate bearings like that, how do those mount to the struts? I'm definitely curious to see that install.

I went with the whiteline camber bolts from rallysportdirect, they also had eibachs, but I just felt more comfortable with whiteline...

The bearings go in the center of the camber plate. Here is a pic of the old ones still installed:

Gotcha, I was trying to picture where that would go in my head and I just couldn't. Why'd you need new ones?

The old bearings are worn out, they are moving around and clucking over bumps and making popping noises when I turn... RCE said the bearings usually last about 2 years; these bearings are 7yrs old!
