    Icon11 Thoughts on Widening 406 Front Track

    This applies to both D8 and D9 cars of all body styles.

    They share the basic hub/spindle with Xantias - part numbers interchange exactly for balljoint, heatshield, bearing, circlip and hub (in addition to the whole assembly).

    Xantias have a 10mm wider (per side) track variation on HDi, V6 and Activa models through production life. This is achived by a hub that extends outwards 10mm extra and the final piece of driveshaft being 10mm longer in its plain section between splines and the nut threads.

    There are two sizes of outer CV joint. So long as one chooses the visually similar piece, it is a compatible type. This means possibly also selecting an ABS ring of the correct pitch, although most would be 48 tooth, I imagine.

    Not sure if anyone will ever go through all this, but it's a sneaky mod to pick up some extra track width, that doesn't use spacers...

    Just like what you can do with a 504. Fit 505 or 604 control arms to widen the front, or hubs/trailing arms to widen the back.

    Another generation of Pugs to tinker with.

    Doesn't the 406 coupe have a wider track than the 406 sedan as well?

    Given that they have a different offset of wheel compared to the sedan - yes.

    Yes, but same hubs/spindles. So you could add 20mm overall to a coupé as well.

    Don't tell me things like this when I am unemployed and have no money to spend on my car!!

    I have a cheap 406 I'm slowly getting back to glory, and this sounds like a decent "down the track" mod!

    (Ps-I start a new job in january, hooray, my SV will love me again!!)
