Did not see these listed.
Ford Sierra/Merkur rear.
4X108 PCD.
Bolt on stub/bearing carrier, 4 bolts
Complete bearing carrier, stub axle, and hub come to just over 10Lb. per side on my scale.
Easy to find and pretty cheap even in the U.S., lots on feeBay including NOS.

I think the front are similar and I know they have disc brakes.
I've also found that changing the rear to disk WITH a parking brake is pretty inexpensive.
Calipers at around $100 each and solid disc from as little as $5.00 new (Yes, $5.00!) in original Ford boxes or spend more for wong-fu made drilled, slotted, etc.
For me these are great as I am using set of Enkei Alfa Romeo 4x108 wheels.

Additional info provided via the U.S. eBay seller of some brackets I am buying.

"Convert the heavy, weak, and outdated drum brakes for lighter, stronger, and better calipers. These adapters will accept Merkur Scorpio rear calipers and brackets, which are exactly identical to Ford Sierra Cosworth rear calipers!

The rotors used are easily and readily found anywhere. Believe it or not, they come from a 01-04 Focus ZTS! They already have the same 4x108 bolt pattern and the same 63.3mm center bore making it a direct fit! Because the focus is a popular car, there are many styles of rotors to choose from such as OEM solid, or aftermarket vented/drilled.
You will also have no issues fitting these under the OEM 14" wheels too!
Because all parts are essentially OEM Ford, this kit has another advantage. You can purchase a Ford Sierra rear parking cable to make it a TRULY bolt-on conversion. This can be found at Merkur Depot. Mike will take care of your needs.

If I must be a one-man PC free zone, so be it!

Yes, they are a bit heavy, but I think I will use them anyway. The HA590069 weighs 5.7 pounds and the HA590067 weighs 7.5 pounds. I expected the hub part to be aluminum, but they are iron too. These are actual Timken parts, not something of unknown parentage.
I have made good functional models out of them in Solidworks 2012. If anyone wants them, I can export them in whatever. Just PM me.

I plan on using these hubs with my Saturn Sky / Pontiac Solstice Uprights... I believe they will bolt right on and give me a 4x100 pattern instead of the useless 5x110.

EDIT: They don't bolt up as best as I can tell... The Bolt Diameter on the Saturn Hub is: 4.567" with a hub pilot diameter of 3.543"

The HA590069 is 4.331" and 3.346" respectively...

Has anyone done this? Anyone have a way of cross referencing timken parts based on mounting diameter / hub pilot diameter? Should I just run the cobalt hub by slotting the saturn upright and machining a bushing to fit the two? (it would be thin at 0.0985", yucky).

I could also just re-drill the saturn hub to 5x100 , but I'd have to do so without disassembling the hub which is mildly annoying, and have the task of fitting rotors and calipers. :BH:

Heya Guys,

I am looking for a 4 x 100 stud pattern with a Honda spline detail 28x32 (http://www.driveline.com.au/sites/defau ... STOMER.pdf)
I am struggling and any assistance would be great, thanks.
