    Nice work
    That was such an experiment. Yes I can use B4 Avant ones of course.

      Installed 5x112 front hubs and changed front brakes (discs and pads), upper strut bearings.
      A4 B6 forged wheels are sitting rather nice!
      Left - new bearings. Right old original ones.

      Ferodo discs with slotting. Also 25mm spacer on them.

      Wheels fitting

      And one more.

        Nail,

        Looking forward to hearing your impressions of your new top-mounts sir, they look like they could easily be up to the job (Russian roads!) If they work well enough I can quit making my fix for the latest Boges/Sachs!

          4th of September I am going to start the trip (2500km) through my country. The result would be written here.

            Finally I did the hubs swap

            Really like my fresh setup!
            So the front axle width is now +34mm and the rear axle is +16mm
            Clearance is bit higher because of my new strut bearings. But this is not a problem, I would rather say that it is a must have option for Russian roads.
            Camber 2.1 front and 1.8 rear.

              Looks quite sharp sir, that LY6T is a lovely colour too, I've rarely seen any sort of blue B3 or 4 sedan.

              What type front hubs did you use, also B5? Did the (2 x 25mm?) front spacers plus the ball-joint shift, yield just an additional 34mm axle width due to less wheel offset and/or perhaps hubs?

              Were the solid sub-frame bushes to also raise the car or just replace the stock bushings?

              Perhaps the increased top-mount height would also suit Canadian winters? I've spent some effort raising both ends of mine.

              So, next is mud-flaps, and perhaps a skid-plate?

                Thanx, I love this color too, but thinking about so popular Nardo Grey.
                Hubs...Stock hubs are 8A0407615. That is because of 1991th model year.

                After conversion:
                Front hubs are 8D0407615E. 25mm spacer on each side (because of hub's offset -4mm). Relocated ball joint. Strut bearing is custom made from 2110 Lada (sealed bearing with a lot of rubber around it).
                Rear hubs are 8D0501653B. No spacers, just the offset of hub (+8mm). Stock ball joint. Strut bearing is like the front one.

                Mud flaps, and light bar from rally car are coming soon))))

                  Speaking about subframes - I've welded solid metal bushes instead of stock rubber-metal-****** ones, which don't go well (half of an year in Russian conditions). Also that was mede to improve the car handling. Their height is quite the same as stock. Just made from metal and don't move up or down, left right, forward backward and so on...

                    That light bar I was talking about

                    Made of composite.
                    And sprayed black matte.
