Default ARP Extended Lug Install?

How difficult is it to install the ARP extended lugs on an 04 STi? I expect it would mean disassembling the rear only?

No, I'm not following you. Don't flatter yourself.

Fronts are very easy. Remove rotors. Thread sacrificial lug nut on stud, hammer out. Pull in new stud with open ended lug nut and washer stacks. You will have to rotate the hub to the front for each one.

For the backs I did this: For the record the backs would only take longer than the fronts by the amount of time spent grinding/machining down the head of the studs.

ARP studs have a slightly bigger head than factory. Studs that come with like HR spacers will fit through, I don't like their studs however.

So....I simply rolled the ARP heads on my grinder for like a minute a piece. The heads are about the size of the sensor opening so it really only added ~ 10-15 minutes to the whole deal. Saved alot of heartache YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PULL THE REAR HUB FOR ARP STUDS.

This works for USDM I'm assuming the JDM hub is not that different and has ABS

Front is pretty ez and streight forward. Hammer the old one out and put the new one in. Tighten the lugs a bit tighter to seat the stud. But don't strip it.

Rear is going to be tough

Ended up taking it into the shop for the install. They estimate about $600, which includes pulling the rear hubs and replacing the bearings.
