    This thread is intended to answer questions about microstub alternatives, especially DIY.

    Let's gather everything we know about microstubs and include it here along with pictures and sources.

    Rather than post links to other threads that contain DIY alternatives like Intreprid hubs, how about selecting content from them and posting here to eliminate the runaround.

    If a microstub setup is available off-the-shelf from a supplier then post a link to that company.

    Does this make sense as a sticky?

    Yes. Maybe a whole new category, "Off the Shelf Solutions"

    Pacific Customs & Moore parts both offer some off the shelf parts set ups for building and setting up your own rear carriers.
    This set up is for the smaller microstub and axle in the 24 spline size

    First the bearing or micro stub in a 24 spline Pacific Customs
    Pacific Customs Sandrail Parts, VW Parts, Dune Buggy Parts, 1.25 DIAMETER 24 SPLINE MICRO STUB BEARING ASSEMBLY FOR TRAILING ARMS THAT HAVE 3.625 HOLE

    Moore Parts
    http://www.mooreparts.com/store/prod.../AC525102-HUB/



    Then the 24 spline drive axle with a 930 cv cup Pacific Customs
    Pacific Customs Sandrail Parts, VW Parts, Dune Buggy Parts, 1.25 DIAMETER 24 SPLINE CHROMOLY STUB AXLE FOR MICRO STUB FOR PORSCHE 930 CV JOINT

    Moore Parts
    http://www.mooreparts.com/store/prod...AC525102-STUB/


    Total from Pacific: $400.
    Total for Moore Parts $370



    Also the plates I use to build my rear trailing arms and fit these micro stubs and axles
    Pacific Customs Sandrail Parts, VW Parts, Dune Buggy Parts, MICRO STUB CALIPER BRACKET FOR MICRO STUB BEARING HOUSING WITH FOUR PISTON CALIPER

    Inner pivot pracket for attaching to your own rear housings to connect your arms.
    Pacific Customs Sandrail Parts, VW Parts, Dune Buggy Parts, IRS TRAILING ARM PIVOT BRACKETS FOR CUSTOM TORSION HOUSING THAT DOESNT HAVE FRAMEHORNS REQUIRES JIG

    You will also need bushings.. see lower part of that link for regular or delrin.

    These hubs are 5 lug by 4.75

    It may not be the cheapest but it's not bad and it is one off the shelf and easy way to buy, replace or repair your car.


    Here is another place to get that 33 spline drive axle with 930 cv cups for 120.
    http://www.mooreparts.com/store/prod...AC501920-STUB/

    But you probably don't want to buy their microstubs.. even though they are 5 lug on 4.75 they cost 185 ea.
    http://www.mooreparts.com/store/prod.../AC501920-HUB/


    Here are some very cheap front automotive front brakes.. you will need to take them and have them machined/drilled to whatever lug pattern your going to run more then likely.
    http://www.pacificcustoms.com/AC498003.html
    But at $250 bucks they are a start. Just a very heavy start.

    Also these work too and come in the 5 lug by 4.75 pattern that will match the microstubs I listed
    http://www.mooreparts.com/store/cate...t-5-Lug-Chevy/


    Jersdunz, please let us know what wheel/lug pattern those are? I believe 5 lug on 4.5 correct?
    Also whats the bearing carrier size? so we know what plates to order or make etc.
    As your kit comes to $340 that is a 30-60 dollar savings.. Depending on shipping from two places etc.. Plus you get a larger axle and bearing? I believe.. so more info would be appreciated please.

    I don't have any info for you guys but I need some. Is there a micro stub and brearing assembly (like the intrepid)that would work with type 4 cv's

    Great idea with this thread, Gene.

    Use the 930 microstub with an adapter spacer to the type 4 pattern.
    Spacer would be 5/8 thickness counterbored for the 930 with M8 taps for the type 4. Red loctite the spacer bolts to the microstub.
    The overall assembled width would only be 5/16 more than the 930.
    I have someone asking for this set-up now.

    Also here are just some of the CV cups you can buy and then weld them onto any axles you want to run also.
    Brakes & Rear Suspension : Axles / Drive Flange 930 - Dune Buggy Parts, Sandrail Parts, VW Parts - MooreParts.com

    There are way more then these but I just saw those so posted them.
    What you could do also is change over to 930 drive axles which are stronger and buy some type 4 cups and weld those on.
    Check places like maybe Kartek or maybe Wright Gear box you can ask them and find cups that can work on any axles you need. My brothers race car has type 2 cvs to larger axles like 930s to go through the drive axle at his wheel and into his tranny.
    My race car has 930 cv cups mounted onto 934 drive axles so I can run the larger 934 microstub bearing and larger axles but still be 930 to my smaller tranny.

    Anyways I like rickS idea and if hes going to make some up anyways maybe jump on that deal as it would be the easiest way. No welding or figureing out just bolt the adapters up and done.
    Nice I like that idea a lot.
