2wd and 4wd front ends are totally different (strut vs wishbone).  Best to just make a custom setup for the ABS sender if it is that important

Ah, that's not quite true. On all the R chassis cars the suspension design is exactly the same between RWD and AWD cars. Double wishbone (for a flexible enough definition of wishbone). Same upper arms. Same-ish lower arms and uprights. But the lower arms are different between AWD and RWD cars and the uprights are different. As far as I know, it is not feasible to put AWD knuckles onto a RWD front end. I might be wrong about that - but the AWD knuckles are obviously very different, because they have the whole axle thing going on.

I do not know if R33 RWD front knuckles will fit onto R32, but there is a very good chance that they will. Worth going to a wreckers and putting them side by side.

I was thinking similar to Duncan. Probably best to find a way to fit a sheetmetal code ring somewhere and custom a bracket to hold a sensor.

Might try my luck with s2 r33 front knuckles cause I think it will be a pain in the ass to make custom ones

Not talking about making custom knuckles. Just some alternative code rings and little brackets for sensors. But I'd look at R33 stuff first, just in case.

I was just schmoozing through the GK-Tech catalogue and see that their fabricated R chassis front knuckles come in specific R32 and R33/4 versions. I don't know exactly what the difference is - but it would suggest that stock R33 probably won't just fall onto an R32. You'll either not win at all, or have to swap a number of other things.

Z32 are definitely compatible with R32. I take it that they have the ABS rings & shiz that you need?
