Has anyone got info on how to change the front ABS hubs?
Namely how they bolt to the stub and the torque settings?

No, I have a grumbling vibration from cold on the left side, at worst from a cold start, this is present stationary or driving and it seems to level out abit with the brakes applied and is only just noticeable when warm.
Nothing vibrates when the car is warm and stationary only noticeable on take off and light cursing.'
On the express way it is fine.
ABS code was 12.
engine was 12 and 13.

There are hammer marks on the hub outer.

Well I disconnected the ABS (thru the fuse) and the problem is still present altho not quite as bad???

Anyway it is worst when cold and the left front vibrated when you reverse with your foot on the brake.

Can anyone tell me the main difference between the IRS and 5 link front ABS hubs?
I assume it is to do with the lock up value and weight distribution?
