Only need '03 up hubs/bearings. The bearings/hubs changed in '02 at some point. So later '02's may also work. (The bearings/hubs are wider.)

Dante just posted this recently in another thread. So Manny, you are good to go. :D

OD bro, i REALLY hate to tell you this man.....but he doesnt need new hubs to use SRT axles...

it's for a long time been a common misconception that the SRT and Neon axles wont fit the same hub.......

but i tell you, here, and now, they will, without ANY doubt fit in the exact same hub.

First off, there's ONLY ONE part number listed for 03/04/05 neon and SRT front hubs... two different bearings, yes, but the hubs are identicle...

Next... If they didnt mix, then please explain to me why I have "SRT" front hubs and my original factory installed axles (non srt) and have zero issues what so ever...

so please, lets all understand this together... front AND rear hubs are interchangable between SRT and nonSRT.

Here's the deal...

All 2nd gen Neons (incl SRTs) have the same hub spline size and count.

2000-mid 2002 Neons have 33mm wide bearings. Mid 2002-2005 Neons and SRTs have 39mm wide bearings. The knuckle, hub and bearings are different beacause of the width difference.

The SRT axle shaft will fit on either hub size.

There is NO difference in the rear hub and bearing in any year/model (2000-2005)

All better? :D

I said you may need them but wasn't sure. Hence find out for sure because I don't know.

OD said you DIDN'T need them, because you have an 03+...
I'm pretty sure he was just saying you need 03+ hubs, not 03+ srt hubs, because that would be retarded to say it like that because they only made 03+ srt's...

true.

guess i got confused from trying to understand what he was trying to say.. idk. so if i wanted to install these hubs then they should work fine correct..? i see all 03 any model neon has same part numbers on bearings and hubs.. reason for using them and not returning them well cause my car has 140k miles and why not just change em out as idk if they have ever been changed before.

My thinking was if the hubs are wider, the spline length may also be longer, so they might not have let the axle nut tighten correctly if used with the narrower bearing/hub. But I guess the splines are short enough to use with either. I had no doubt they would slide into either hub.

maybe this was asked in the 15 or so previous pages but I just want to be sure.... Can I use a stock hood on my SRT swap? or do I need the srt hood as well. My thinking is that I can just use the stock hood but will need to cut out some bracing.

I noticed earlier it was mentioned that the 2000 neon's didn't come with SKIM but mine did? I'm having an issue with my swap but I don't want to garbage up this thread. Thanks
