    I'm looking a 5 stud setup for an EJ9.


    I've seen a few advertised but i was just wondering will the hubs from a DC2 fit or can i only use EK9 ones??


    Thanks

    98 spec DC2 or EK9 are both fine to use mate

    98 spec DC2 is not fine to use, the hubs have a different spline setup so you'd need 98spec JDM B-Series driveshafts, and for that you'd need a B-series


    you can use EK9 or UKDM DC2 setups


    there's loads of topics on this....just have a look

    Thicker spline on the drive shafts in the JDM 98's isn't it, IIRC the spline size is 36mm? Just wondering but, you think this is because it came with 16's from factory? Seems weird they only done it on this model.

    sorry forgot to add UKDM, i know the differences as im just about to buy this setup. yes the driveshaft splines are different on the 98 spec JDM as i would of had to by driveshafts with a 36 mm spline for my kswap, all others are 32mm


    sorry !
