    Anyone know if I can swap out the hubs on my 02 wrx to an Sti hub?

    I have an 02 sedan, Wrx, and im after the 5x 114 bolt pattern. What would I need in order to swap from my current 5x100? Is it as simple as hubs, or do I need much more?

    I'm fairly certain you need to replace much more. I also have an 02, with 04 STi hubs (5x100). I was just looking into picking up some 06 STi hubs for the 5x114 bolt patters as well as upgraded bearings.. I was told I need to do the whole swap at once: STi 6-speed transmission, STi axles, R180 rear diff, drive shaft, hubs, shift linkage, etc.

    Really. Aw man. I was hoping I could just swap out the hubs and change the bolt pattern. Sounds like way too much to me. If you find out anything more or anyone else has any info please share. Thanks for theinput. Much appreciated

    ^ Yep. I'd read that in a bunch of places as well...that's why if you are swapping in a 6spd that isn't an 04 is very difficult as well.

    Unless you get custom axles made to mate the 114 hubs to the trans and diff I don't think there are stock axles that will fit
