Larger bearing - http://www.driftninjaz.com/images/Ri...lBearings.xlsx

Significantly larger so able to take a sustained beating for longer.

The rear bearings I don't have a problem with, so I'd like redrill my hubs or just run 4 lugs in the rear.

If we get enough people together, perhaps www.gp-werks.com will make up a bunch of axles for us. That is the hardest part. The rest is just knowing what to get and finding it in a junkyard.

I am also working on ABS compatibility. The sensor and tone ring are the same design, so I am hopeful that it is a simple matter of mating up the wires. Full ABS function is important to me as the stock system with EBD kicks major ass.
