thanks for the update, I got an email from Strom mentioning your find with the threaded caliper mount. thank you for the leg work on that part.

which two lower bolts are you talking about? To mount the hub bearing?


thanks
No problem!

Correct. The lower two bolts to mount the upright to the bearing. I may just have some thick tools but just wanted to give everyone a heads up so they can plan accordingly.
Just installed one side. I'll install the driver side another day. Install was a easy and straight forward. I didn't have issues with the 2 lower bolts. Mainly because I had upgraded to ARP bolts and it uses a 12 point m14 socket. I did have issue with my brake cooling duct. Clearly it was made for OEM upright. So modifications was necessary.
Which bolts did you upgrade? Can you share a link to arp website? Ty!
I replace the hub bearing every year since I mainly track my car and it's a maintenance item for me. So the oem bolts are one time use. With ARP they can be reused since the strength is much higher and better fastener. so worth it.

here is a link. direct replacement and exact size, but 12 point head to make it easy to install.

That's a great idea. I'm a little mad I didn't think of that before install the hubs. But I got a pretty sweet new socket out of it so you win some and lose some.

Great idea. Sucks I just spent 68 bucks on new OEM bolts.

Do you use any threadlock on the ARP bolts?

I am using 12.9 socket hex bolts for my F80-Core4 hubs which I had difficulties lining up the 6 point hex key.

These ARP 12 points are great for that location. I wish I knew about this option. I never knew such a thing even exist.

Thanks for sharing

Yeah I apply a little blue thread lock and oem torque. Never hurts.
