Karcepts 36mm Swap Hubs provide the SOLUTION for upgrading to OEM Honda/Acura “36mm” axles in high powered 97-01 Integra Type R. Perfect for K-Swaps; but can also be used with high output B, D, F, H, and J-Swaps.
Like breaking axles? Level 1 Swap Axles just don't cut the mustard with a rating of only 200WHP. Whose K-Swap doesn't make over 200WHP?!? Level 2.9 Swap Axles are not much better of an alternative as they still utilize the smaller Civic/Integra/CRX axle spline and will run a good $800 for a pair. This is where OEM Honda/Acura “36mm” axles fit in. They utilize a substantially larger axle spline which allows them to handle higher horsepower and torque outputs, yet they are extremely cost effective. This larger axle spline is observed in chassis such as the Acura RSX-S, Honda 06+ Civic Si, and Honda Prelude. Unfortunately, this larger spline is unable to be installed directly into OEM Civic, Integra, or CRX hubs, so that is where our Karcepts 36mm Swap Hubs come into play. Karcepts Hubs are modeled almost exactly after the OEM Honda/Acura hubs they replace, except that the splines now match that of the larger “36mm” axles. Side Note: Internet forum terminology has named the larger OEM spline axles “36mm”. We have conformed to that terminology as not to confuse others. However; for educational and axle identification purposes, “36mm” is actually the socket size used for the axle nut of these larger spline axles. The larger spline diameter in reality measures 29.50mm on these axles.

Replaces factory OEM Acura hubs found on all USDM 1997, 1998, 2000, and 2001 Acura Integra Type-R models. These hubs use a 43mm I.D. wheel bearing. You may also use these hubs on any USDM 1994-2001 Acura Integra knuckle if desiring to convert from 4lug to 5 lug. Just note that you will also need to upgrade to USDM ITR brake discs and calipers.
