I must know how you came upon this discovery

Front hub from Evo 5 GSR with Brembo option.



Front track control arm from Evo 5.

The arm won't be a straight swap either, the shocks may have a different stroke.
I meant to take pictures of the Ralliart hub and Evo 5 hub side by side but forgot. The ball joint may be a possibility, but I have not measured, if that works then I think a definite work around will be found for the strut.

hey guys thanks for the wishes and what not, thankfully i have a job again, and thanks for taking the time to notice that the evo 5 knuckles wont work, I didn't have time to take my spare to compare them side by side. my car unfortunetly needed some work so I had to put the brake swap on hold
what turned out to just being replacing the lca's turned into needing a new front subframe and motor mounts mounts took quite awhile to come in lol
however I am back and going to try and get my hands on a evo 8 knuckle and try and futher this project to see if the brembos can swap onto the ralliart

It's not that they wont work, it's not a direct swap. If the hole for the ball joint on the Evo 5 knuckle is enlarged to fit the Ralliart ball joint, or if the ball joints can be swapped then it works.

Ok so I am gonna take a swing at this. I just got my stoptech front and rear kit for my Evo. So now my old brembo are available for my lancer. Now I just need some help and some ideas to try. Would the bracket made for the dsm fit on the ralliart. Bc it was said that the dsm calipers bolt on. And I seen dsm with brackets that fit the brembo. So just a thought does it seem plausible

could work. I would try it for sure if I had brembos laying around.

Seems like it would work. Only issue may turn out to be rotor size at that point. Im not sure if an Evo's rotor would be too big, or if the RA's would be too small at that point. How much can you find those brackets for VS a set of evo hubs? Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

I just bought the brackets for 80 shipped to Hawaii. The guy said that he made the brackets to have the Evo 8 calipers bolt up to a dam. Also to use the stock evo 8 rotors

UPDATE
been awhile since I've been on here but I have started to get parts coming to complete this, I already have the front brembos and slotted rotors for the front. Brackets will be getting made shortly then stainless steel brake lines will be ordered next

SOOOOO i have good new and bad news.
Bad news: the guy couldn't make me a bracket to fit on our knuckle due to such little room to work with.
Good news: i was able to find a guy parting out a Evo 9 and was able to pick up both front knuckles for a decent price.SOOOO in other words WE GET TRRUUUU ahaha they should be getting shipped to me this weekend.i now have "everything" to try this conversion. i will post pics and update if theres any snags.

Still watching. Thanks for the update. If I could have more brakes, and a manual swap with an LSD, my sportback would be much more to my ideal....
