That's Great!

Just like Chris, you'll gonna cost me money.


People are commenting that the Corvette bearings look like they are from a FWD vehicle.
The newer Mustangs use the same type of front bearings.

A Lot of newer cars are running this type of bearing hub. But... the only one with the correct 5 4 3/4 wheel bolt pattern is the Corvette unit.

A FWD hub bearing will have internal splines for the C/V axle to engage into. This bearing doesn't have a center hole.

Have you thought about moving the tie rod attachment point for correct ackerman and lowest bump steer?

The 4th Gen Camaro (93-02) has the same type of hub set-up and same bolt pattern.

I've been looking for my notes but haven't found them yet. But if I recall my steering knuckle is a couple pounds heavier than the factory unit. It is much lighter than the S10 knuckle.

Not to hijack, but I have a set of S10 dropped spindles I would sell cheap just to get out of my garage. $100 for the set + Ship.. or prepay and I will bring to PA convention.

FYI - Late model S-10s use a similar hub assembly w/ the correct 5 x 4 3/4" lug spacing. My '02 2WD Blazer has them, while most (all?) P/Us use the conventional spindle. When I install my 2" drop spindles I'll have to change the front brake rotors. Trade-offs.

Tom -
Does that price include the hubs?
