To fix this I got a set of lightened aluminium spacers and some extended wheel bolts. What initially seemed like it would be a simple job of knocking out the old bolts and fitting the new ones into the hubs soon became a bit of a mare. The bolts I got had splines that were slightly wider than the stock bolts. They just wouldnt go into the hubs.
Along came my mate rob who luckily for me builds kit cars for a hobby and has all the kit need ed. He took 4 of the bolts and lathed them down a bit as a tester. This did sacrifice the splines but worth a try we thought.
So today I took the 4 new bolts and tried again. They went in without too much issue pulling through with the bolts with no cross threading or wear which is good. With the 25mm spacer it gave just enough thread for the nuts to go on. So on initial appearance it seems to have worked! At least until the wheel comes flying off anyway.
So Rob has kindly agreed to sort the other 12 bolts so I can do the other 3 corners
Here is a pic of the one ive done as you can see looks.so much better. I think I might either have to remove the arch liners now or raise the suspension up a tad. But ill figure that out once the 4 wheels are done.
