Its a new rule, you must have 15 posts before you can make your own thread or send PM. So just make a few posts in other peoples threads, then you can post your own. Welcome.

Hey I dont have a 2nd gen but I'm curious as to what is needed for the 5 lug conversion. My friend has a 92 Stanza and IIRC the 9Stanza and Maxima are pretty close from what I've seen

So just to be sure, the front knuckles and the rear full strut assembly off a 3rd gen third gen is all he'll need. Cuz not only is he going for the 5 lug conversion but he's got DRUMS and well, I dont know if any stanzas came with disc so the maximas disc would be nice.

Watch...I'm going to bump a 7 year old thread because I say an open question...and it probably doesn't matter that it's answered now.

What's nice about the 3rd gen was the SE's had rear disc brakes, and the GXE had drums. So if you wanted to do this on a Stanza with drums, in theory you can use the GXE suspension. You could also use this as an opportunity to convert to disc...however I'd be worried about how the brakes are proportioned if one did that.

I know this is a uber thread revival but any good working links or updates? So just swap the entire 3rd gen hub/brake assemblies over?
