where to buy a rear hub nut
« on: June 30, 2019, 17:27:48 PM »
Going to replace my rear bearings before a 2000 mile round trip to Spain, the garage that replaced the handbrake backing plates have [email protected]#~d the rear bearings so much as the brake discs and pads catch on corners as the weight shifts. Ordered FAG bearings for all round replacements front and rear.

As I might have to drill and split the nut with a chisel, anyone know where to find new hub nuts that fit even if they arn't Calibra/Vauxhall?

Yes I read the ad and it says for front and rear hubs for the Calibra but also says its a driveshaft hub nut (4x4?).

I have read somewhere that the fronts are 30mm and the rears 32mm and the Calibra is my daily driver, an 8 valve 2wd.

Then again I could be talking complete tosh, as hardly anyone changes the rear bearings so there's not much info out there.

Yes I agree about lack of info.

Why not contact them giving full details of your car.......they should be able to match a hub nut to your vehicle.
