    was wondering if anyone knew the dimensions of the 14 bolt ff bolt pattern, such as bolt circle diameter, etc. i was thinking of making some wheel spacers.....

    It's 8 on 6.5
    Wheel studs are 9/16th.
    I would advise against making your own spacers. They need to be pretty strong - any big company you buy them from will have lawyers that make sure they're plenty strong.
    I read somewhere that the rear axle is narrower than the front so it can ride in different tracks - more tractions.
