1993-1999 Celica ST/GT/GT-S FWD (ST20*(in my case ST202))

**Optional** (I'll talk about this in toward the end of this)
1993-1999 Celica (ST/GT/GTS FWD bearings (optional)**
1994-2000 RAV4 Front Hubs(optional)**
1993-2000 Brake Rotors (optional)**
Bearing Press (optional)**
Wheel bearing adapter puller press and installer removal tool kit(optional)**
Snap ring plier set (optional)**
A small hammer (optional)**

So Hey Guys so i got a DIY for all of you since I still have my corolla and its been sitting being a driveway queen since ECU got fried for unknown reasons and waiting for X amount of money for the repairs, so while i wait for my troubles to come to pass i thought I'd give you guys something to do since most of us are 4 lug. this is basically a drop-in, bolt on swap for the front i will work on doing the rear when spring/ summer comes around this year (in my case when warmer, drier weather comes.)

So to actually start what I have below me is a set of US Spec 1993-1999 ST202 Celica FWD front hubs and knuckles. I got it these out of a 1996 Celica GT from a local pick n pull (junkyard or wreckers in your countries)
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0010
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0011

So obviously 1st step is to jack up your rolla
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0012

Next step is to soak the lug nuts, lug studs and hub centric hub with some rust penetrating spray then remove the wheels with a 21mm impact socket (1/2) and impact gun (1/2)
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0013

Next Step is to soak the outter tie rod locking nut, outter tie rod castle nut, axle nut, strut nuts and bolt threads caliper bolts & the lower ball joint nuts and bolts.
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0015
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0014

Next is to go ahead and crack open the caliper bolts and remove the caliper with a 17mm socket or wrench(use the box end). if its on a bit tight get your large hammer and hit the wrench clock wise (facing you) then use a ratchet or ratcheting wrench to complete the process.
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0016

Then While your at it get a 19mm wrench (open end) and crack open the locking nut of the outter tie rod
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0017

Next is to get your 30mm axle socket and impact gun and start getting the axle nut out
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0018

Next is to get a 17mm impact socket and impact gun and remove the castle nut off the outter tie rod, then hammer the arm that keeps the tie rod in till either it pops out on its own or till you can pop out with ease by hand
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0019
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0020

Next is to use that same 17mm impact socket and impact gun to hit the (2) lower ball joint nuts and (1) bolt to remove the lower ball joint off the lower control arm
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0021


Next is to get a 19mm wrench and 19mm short socket and remove the (2) strut bolts then shortly after remove the knuckle and lower ball joint as 1 whole unit.
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0022


Next is to remove the outter tie rod, now this is optional but your gonna have to do an alignment anyways but I counted the times I was backing the outter tie rod till it came out, then screw in the ST202 outter tie rod back in, if you counted great, if not well not like the end of the world.
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0023
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0024

Next is basically reverse order with the ST202 knuckle and lower ball joint. Put the lower ball joint in the lower control arm (yes it is a direct fit not drilling or modding required!) insert the (2) LCA nuts and (1) bolt in with a 17mm impact socket, Put the (2) 19mm strut bolts through the knuckle, put the 17mm castle nut in the outter tie rod and insert the cotter pin through the outter tie rod.
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0032
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0025
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0026
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0027
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0028
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0030
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0031
Front 5 Lug Swap  Dsc_0029


Then it is the same process on the other side but then boom you have a Celica 5 lug swap in the front now I will come back to this later to show how to do the rears so be on the eye for that.

Now to discuss about the optional** stuff. Now honestly I haven’t done this because I don’t mind having a 5x100 setup but I am going off of my own research and assumptions, I will provide links to my source of where I got the information. But from what I found you can use first gen RAV4’s hubs to get a 5x114.3 setup but that would also require you have a 5x114.3 rotor, now in my assumption RAV4 rotors are almost identical to Celica only difference is the 5 lug setup. Brake pads should be the same. As for the wheel bearings you can still use the Celica wheel bearings but that would require a wheel bearing press or a tool like a wheel bearing puller and installer set as well as a set of snap ring pliers because those wheel bearings are being held by a snap ring. whats also optional is not doing the drop in swap but instead pressing out and pressing in new bearings and hubs into your existing AE101 knuckles. though im going into this route is because of a big brake setup that'll let you guys in soon!

ah, I knew it looked like you had no brakes on in that pic with the wheel that you posted elsewhere! lol

Did the hub offset change that much on the conversion, or is the wheel sticking out so much just because of the wheel?

Nice job, it's neat that everything bolted up directly like that

the hub offset did change that much on the conversion but also the wheel and 25mm wheel adapter also made the wheel stick out lol
