I'm sorry for asking what seems to be a simple question but I have been searching for twenty minutes and have not found a definitive answer to this question -

Say you have a stock 2004 STI. When you convert the front to the new bearing style using stock 05 hubs/knuckles/rotors/struts why is there an issue with the abs sensor? I assume the tone ring is attached to a part that isn't being converted? What factory part would be needed to get the ABS working?

The tone ring is attached to the driveshaft (cv joint). The tone ring is in a different location on the 2005 cv joints. So you have to move it on the 2004 axles in order for it to line up with the sensor location on the 2005 knuckles.

I'll be doing 5X114.3 on my STi wagon. I have a late model 04 STi axles/tranny (male axles) .Will 05 STi axles bolt up to the tranny or splines are different?

If you have the later style axles you should be able to swap to the 05 axles.

That was my next question. Couldn't I just swap the seals on the transmission and use 2005 style axles for a complete conversion?

Its not the seals, its the stub shafts on the trans. Early 04 sti has a male style trans with female shafts, the later years have female trans with male shafts. I have early 04 sti axles on my 5mt though, cheap and easy upgrade.

But aren't the stubs on the 04 trans held in with circlips just like on the 4eat? From what I know the 5mt was the only one with "permanently attached" stubs.
I swear you could convert a male 6 speed to female and vice versa with the correct seals...

edit: Yeah I was right. From the The end all of 6 speed swap information thread
Quote:
If you choose a male axle 6mt and you have a female front axle car you will need these:

806730042 Oil Seal LH x1
806730041 Oil Seal RH x1
38415AA110 Axle Stub x2
805329010 C-Clip x2

If you have a Female 6mt and a male front axle car you will need the following:

806735230 Oil Seal x1
806735240 Oil Seal x1
Which also means you shouldn't need to remove the roll pin on your 2004 STI since the axle stubs will slide right out in the same style as the rear differential.

Not on the early 04 STi (later in the year they changed) They use the roll pin just like the 5mt, but have the better cv joint instead of the tripod ones. I have them on my 5mt right now with 06 sti hubs and the 6gun tone ring adapters.

Ive been doing research about the 5x100 to 5x114.3 conversion. Seems I'll need a lot of parts from the later 5x114.3 cars.
My question is, I have a GC8 STI type RA V5. I wonder if its the same as coverting a normal WRX?

If you have a r180 then its pretty straight forward. Its like a bearing replacement for the rear but you would use 5x114.3 hubs. The front would be just like everyone elses swap.

so I have an 04 STI and of course Im here because I want 5x114. So I bought this, and from what I can tell, the only thing left is new coils (need them anyway) and wheels.

i was reading about rear axles being different lengths, but then i read where they were not, and I can retain my rear axles. So I'm pretty sure I have everything Needed.

Im loving the fresh black calipers, looking forward to the Aluminum Rear arm upgrade, and I can replace some of these bushings while everything is sitting off the car in the garage.











can everyone see the pictures?
