What's up guys. I'm putting turbo brakes on my base model. I had a list of part numbers but I can't find it. Can anyone tell me the part numbers for the wheel bearings and seals for the front turbo knuckles? Also, it's just one bearing then an inner and outer seal correct? Rockauto has a couple different listed so I wasn't sure which ones to get. Thanks!

Front 89 turbo knuckles still are captive rotor setup, will have inner/outer bearings and inner/outer seals. Should actually be the same wheel bearings as 1.5L knuckles.

Brake caliper is larger, rotor is vented, rotor is a larger diameter and more brake pad contact area. All of that with the matching higher ratio booster, means you get a brake setup that will at least allow you drive with traffic. The standard low model brake setup is scary ... and probably just fine out in the middle of Japans countryside with little traffic to worry about.
As mentioned, the knuckles are the same between all C50/C60 cars - turbo or not.
