GTV V6 front hubs onto TS

Okay so I picked some coil-overs up off of this great forum for decent money.

I have always run everyone of my cars low as can be and dont mind a spinebusting ride.

I have a GTV TS the coil-overs are designed for the V6 spring rates I have delt with.. harshness off the shock is to be seen and can always be rebuilt softer if needs be.

My issue is getting the hub mount and strut to hub mount to line-up.
The original plan was to drill out the hub holes to take M12's and space out the difference with washers.. this was when I thought the 35mm mounting bracket of the V6 was just 10mm wider than the TS.
Had I researched more I'd have known that, that is not the case.

Most logical option here is to change the front hubs for V6 items and upgrade to 300mm Brembo's.. perhaps slightly over kill but the brakes aren't great anyway.

Just question as to wether this is possible or am I going to get issues with the ARB etc ?
any diagrams showing the differences between the V6 and TS assembly.

Regards and thank you for any info.

It can be done, you'll need the TREs and rods also and the inner CV from the V6. Arb mounted to the wishbone will be fine left there.

It's how I've done it on mine.
