ok im looking to see if this is easily done , ive heard about someone using a 5bolt protege front spindle assy. and a mx6 rear sub frame.

would these even fit ? i havent been able to view the protege's spindles but the mx6 rear sub frame appears to be a true bolt up set.

anyone got any in put on this?

1st gen probe and MX6 (late 80s early 90s) front knuckles bolt on no problem as for the rear, after a bunch of research I have suspicions that a 3rd gen protege rear hub/bearing will bolt right up, but i have yet to confirm..

as far as MX6 rear subframe, I have yet to hear of/see that...

I assume the splining must be the same at the hub. Would it change the steering geometry? Meaning are the tie rod end same fit and location? What ball joint would you use? Are the brakes bigger? Not planning on changing my rims out, just curious...tis interesting.

Arostar wheels would probably fit with that setup but Windstar/Freestar wheels won't. The Mazda hubs use a 5X114.3 pattern and the Windstar/Freestar uses 5X108.
