Basically guys i bought some hubs that i thought were 18mm. Ive cleaned and painted them.and fitted new bearings etc and have discovered they are 16mm hubs. Naturally i want to keep them due to the time money and effort i have put in. My question is can i simply fit new 16mm bottom ball joints and all will be well? Or are there major differences in design between the 16 and 18 hubs that would prevent me from using the 16s?
