Sorry for bringing up an old thread... but...
Does anyone know whether all countries got the revised hub/knuckle in 01?
More specifically if Australia got this, keeping in mind that the top spec car had a 4G93 SOHC and they all used some tiny 230mm or so rotors

This is an 01 revision RS big brake model only change. Pretty small number of cars in the big scheme of things. And CJ4A mivecs were JDM only of course.

It's weird that according to the JDM ASA software the CJ4A was made from August 1995 to August 2000.
I wonder why these 2001 models aren't listed in the OEM software?

00, 01 and 02 are the first numbers in the chassis number. CJ4A 0200***. They do not refer to the year of manufacture

aha, thanks for sharing that
i knew the evo 5 onwards used that system (CP9A 00 = evo5, 01 = evo 6 & 02 = evo6 TME) but didnt know they used it in CJ4A

So the RS versions with big brake package only, and I assume this is with 4x114 stud pattern?

All big brake models from factory were 4x114. If a car was running 4x100 with big brakes these were fitted by someone aftermarket. Small brake RS were 4x100. Reference Mcborg's old asti as a small brake RS with 4x100 pcd.

Ducko's has knuckles with the wider spaced caliper hanger mount holes and thus EVO IV style brake hangers and calipers but with 4 x 100 hubs. Did any of the small brake models come with the wider spacer hanger mount bolt holes?

Without knowing the chassis number I would say its 01 revision RS small brake model from factory. They changed the sway bar mounting to the A arm and the arm and knuckle etc. So all those components would be the same for the 01 models regardless of brake size. Then for the factory it was easiest just to have to have a different hub flange put into the knuckle to be 4x100 and a caliper mounting frame to take the small caliperwith wider spacing.
I've always thought it weird that small brake RS is 4x 100 and yet the ZR is small brake but has 4x114. This might have been that they had a lot of the factory mags they share with the same era GSR lancer and wanted to be able to fit them, and make it harder to dress up a mid spec RX to look like a ZR, product differentiation...? :)

Were the knuckles the same and just different stud pattern?
I have 4X114 front big brakes fitted from an Evo III (I believe) but the knuckles are causing camber issues and bumpsteer issues.
I want to go back to a stock gen 2 knuckles and redrill the 276mm brakes to 4X100 in the hope that the bumpsteer/camber issues are solved

Small brake RS? I have that on my car right now, and it's breaking my mind since I can't look for new brake pads since the caliper design is different that normal proton/mitsu that are of the same size, anyone able to help me get a brake pad model code for the small RS brakes?

So am I right to say in theory... a cj4a wif chassis numbers "cj4a 0100xxx" or "cj4a0200xxx“ would have the revised suspension setup irregardless of hatch or coupe body?

Yes that is correct. But this is for rs models only.
