Just got a set of S14 spindles and coilovers.

Out of curiosity, has anyone ever tried mounting stock wheel hubs to S14 spindles with a different wheel bearing? If there happens to be one that matches the OD of the spindle and the ID of the Star/Quest front hubs, it would likely be cheaper than new S14 hubs/bearings/studs

Also to note, Nissan uses  M12x1.25 studs on the wheel hub unlike Mitsubishi that uses M12x1.5 studs, so you will need a new lug nuts as well.  S14 hub bearings aren't pressed in like S13 hubs, they are a sealed unit with the hub. So yes every time you need a new bearing, you buy a complete hub assembly.
