    Yes...

    Do a search on "hubs" as there is a plethora of info on here about that specific topic.

    Yep, but depending on who you get the hubs from you may need to lose the snap ring and spacer(washer) and use the supplied snap ring at the end of the shaft in order to get the hub to fully seat.

    Other than that, there is nothing to it.....[​IMG]

    Still hoping the GOV'T will ban the use of loud stereos with RAP music. [​IMG]
