Can someone suggest the inside diameter of the rear wheel bearing for an N/A (non turbo) Z32
Do you have the old bearing? The sizes are nominal in 5mm increments.
I replaced one about 12 months back and initially the hub and bearing were described as fitting an N/A Turned out it was for a TT so the car sat on the hoist at the garage for 10 days or so while I sourced another part. This time it was the bearing only so I had to get the old hub bronzed up and machined. I've got a noise in the alternate rear now and I don't want to pull it down and find its the wrong part again. The catalogue describes the part # (bearing only) as suitable for an zN/A but on the invoice it read TT. Very confusing. All I really have to go on is the inside diameter which I scoped out at plus/minus 42.75 mm.
The N/A and the TT bearing look the same but must be different because they go to a lot of trouble saying what it will and wont fit, so I'm basically trying to sus this out before I put a spanner on it and potentially have the existing wheel bearing fall apart in my hand.
Not to hijack the thread but are the JDM and USDM turbo rear wheel bearings different (as the bigger US wheel has a different offset)
