Hi guys. looking for some advice; hope you good lads can help.

I am looking to do a 5lug conversion on my Gen2. I was really thinking of the aluminum front arms off an Evo 5 and RS brakes.

Now its a given that the front track will be wider, can anyone tell me how much wider? And if anyone has side by side pics of a Gen2 front LCA and an Evo LCA would be awesome. Also can anyone who has done it before share with me if it alters the wheelbase of the car? I was wondering if it does does change the position of the front wheels, so much so that the wheels doesnt sit center in the front fender?

Track will come out about 8mm per side from memory.

Wheelbase wasn't any different to the eye, maybe a few mm at most.

The steel arms are evo 2 but should be same dimension as gen 2

i found this pic somewhere. afew mm would be enough to push the front wheels off center :(

seriously, any performance benefits? Apart from the added strength of the components, i am not sure if they any lighter than factory arms, maybe even heavier. Also not sure if the new ball joint will make a difference?

The biggest advantage is the Castor change, which visually will push the wheels towards the front of the arch.
