      The easiest way to know if you have a 3 bolt or 2 bolt is stick your head under the car and look.

      To swap between the setups you need spindles, control arms and struts

      And to think I was thinking of swapping from 3 to 2 bolt lol ..... that's until I found a set of European disc brake spindles for the 1302
