    Morning Lads,

    I have found a pair of custom, billet aluminium, front hubs that are supplied with Aluminium calipers and MS disks, these were purpose built by the previous owner. He used the Chev stub axle to set the bearings etc... My question is, do any of you "bright sparks" out there have the dimensions of the front, non-drive stub axle. I would either like to buy a set from a trailer manufacturer or worst case machine them up on a lathe. Any thoughts?

    Secondly, does any one know anything about these calipers?

    Cheers,

    Clean it up and take it to someplace like Tractor Supply and see if it fits on any of their axle parts. Check the OD of the bearings and see if they're "standard" trailer stuff. May be the easiest way to figure it out.

    Calipers look like standard 3.5" mount calipers. Should take common pads. You should be able to match them up with Wilwood pads.
