Front hub compatibility and rear full float axle query

More
24 Apr 2017 22:03 #180538 by stimpy
Just getting some bits together to complete a fully floating rear axle conversion and am looking at hubs.

My Jimny is a 51 non ABS car and i've seen some 2004 abs hubs. Are these compatible?

I've also read that sj front hubs are also compatible ( for a rear float conversion) - can anyone confirm?.

Thanks...

Why not go for sam/vit/gv fixed front hubs?

Thanks lads but i still have no idea what a sam/vit/gv hub concoction is. Lovely picture btw but still don't know what parts are off what!

I am aware that sj hubs will fit and obviously jimny hubs. Was only thinking of sticking with Jimmy so all the bearings and bits would be the same.. Otherwise i was going to use SJ units and have sourced some if necessary...

Are you sure about that?

Samurai and Vitara's comes with manual freewheel hubs.

Had several samurais and vitaras with fixed hubs.
Maybe it's different in Holland

SJ's and Vitaras came with fixed hubs but free wheeling hubs were an option many chose to save fuel.

I have fixed hubs on the front of my Jimny.

So, can anyone confirm my original query so i can hopefully take some information from this!?

"My Jimny is a 51 non ABS car and i've seen some 2004 abs hubs. Are these compatible?"

Thanks...

Yes the hubs with the wheel bearing will fit. There is a difference in brake disc centre bore on some abs Jimnys. I think from 2005 on but you would need to check. Also you would need to check the abs chop ring doesn't foul anything.

Then decide whether you want to use fixed hub locking plates as pictured from an sj, or manual ones like the Aisin type. With these you will need spacers to fit them. Or you can use Jimny specific ones such as avm
