    I make them to be M10x30. Off a whole load off stuff from Mk1 Sciroccos upto various Polos and Golfs and Audi 80/90s upto late 90's stuff.

    Also found on rear axle of LT vans...

    Not quite the answer I was expecting, though I've got a couple of other things to check.

    Cheers :thumbup:

    Thread merged, cheers all.

    Ok, those are Mk1 caliper to hub bolts.

    I need to check a pot of bolts and the Ford bolts. Then hopefully we'll have this wrapped up.

    Ok... Dont shoot me down;)

    I'm guessing if I've made sense of what I've read here and from the threads linked you want the M10's but +9.5mm over the 30mm?

    Mk1 Golf rear stub axle bolts checked: 24.5mm thread length (ie under head length), so usual ETKA issues here, with Mk1 bolt lengths not corresponding to reality:
    Sceptical about Mk2 stub axle bolts. People need to measure and check & add width of spacer to whatever they find.

    came across these,there more drop plates than spacers but also give you 2" more susp travel and double up as camber plates.

    An interesting idea - toying with the physics mind!

    Are they Beetle originated by chance?

    Certainly thought-provoking, though I'd want the lot welded on.

    It'll correct rear beam arch centering, do the outward spacering, but the real question is whether there is any anti-dive aspect to it?

    Well I have some from Lupo ones now but one side is on back order (time = unknown)


    Talking to Gurd'ss earlier we were discussing the difference between both sides (can I not use the same side part for both sides??
    Any one know of any implications?

    I'd say none. Cut the lugs off, check anything residual isn't touching rusted bits of backplate, and you should have zero cambered spacers ready to fit. Shamfer the edges to be sure.

    I should dig out the normal drum stub axle diameters - that way you'd have a template to lay over and cut round.

    From looking at vagcat I'm guessing these are the modifications :-( I'm going to have to make
    Do I need to cut the left hand side bit off too??

    I'll be removing my rears discs to reveal the dimensions before making mods, I'll pick up a crayon on way.
