The main difference in the 5x114.3 sti hubs is that the front bearing is much stronger than the 5x100, and once the bearing dose wear out its much easyer to replace because you done have to press it out, its just 4 bolts and you replace the whole hub and bearing as an assembly. But the rear bearing is still the same just the spline count on the hub thats pressed into it it different to work with the bigger axles used with the R180 and thats why you need the whole rear end off an STi to swap to 5X114.3.
