2004 VUE Red Line
Default Re: 2005 FWD Rear Disc Conversion

Does anyone know if there is an option for the awd vues? My subframe rusted and cracked so I may as well do the conversion if I need to replace it.

Why are axle tips needed? Is it for the wheel studs? Did the equinox only have rear discs in AWD models?

Sorry havent been on here for awhile.
The Axle tips are needed for the Hub Bearings to last. Without the Axle Tips bearing will not last.
Saturn Stock Axle tips are wider than the Equinox. You can't use the the saturn stock axle tips they're wider..

2007-2009 Equinox FWD/ AWD both came with REAR DIsc..

Will this modification work with the Vue's ABS system?

I think the 2007+ Equinox and 2008+ Vue used a different ABS system.

Also will the 2002-2007 Vue rear wheel bearing/hub bolt onto the Equinox knuckle?
