Hi Andre,

As per Kagiso II`s post, contact commercial auto parts. I swopped my hubs over to manuals from Commercial Auto parts a couple of months back, and they seem to be working fine. You need to ask them for 31 spline manual hubs. There are some minor things that need to be changed to convert from auto to manual, but essentially its a very easy swop, and the hubs look indistinguishable from the Nissan factory Manual Hub. I ordered the only set of 31 spline hubs that were in stock at the time, but for the price (R995 per set) will order a second set at some point to keep as a back-up in the vehicle for long trips (just in case!).

Finally after waiting a whole year for my turbo mod 4.2, December 2013 I finally got everything together and done. At 112hp on the big rear wheels she runs like a dream, fuel consumption way better almost 10km/L. All the time and money worth it. I'm including some pics of the component nicely done in stainless steel before installation.
