i tried to install the berrings before the tool came out but they didn't go in right.
so i sent them to hostile and he put the berrings in for me.
the hostile hubs will not work with the hemmi boots.

Hemi and I will be working on a solution that will allow Hemiboots and Hostile hubs to be used together.

The carriers in your first link are adjustable. You would need to buy the HPI rear carriers (if you don't already have them) for the inserts needed to adjust the angle. Handy if you drive on different surfaces, as certain toe-in angles suit certain terrains better than others.

The second link you posted are fixed angle carriers. If you haven't changed your toe in on the rear hubs since you have bought your Baja, just buy the carrier which matches your current set up. You also have the choice between standard 'lightweight' bearing option, and Heavy Duty bearing option on the fixed angled hubs.

Then i presumed i would go for the second link since i dont have the "HPI rear carries insert", my problem now is what standard HPI insert can be found if you buy HPI Baja 5B, im asking coz my ride is in Philippines and dont have access to check it. Is zero angle the safest angle to buy.

Zero is good for soft sand type conditions. 2 degrees has been the most popular that I have sold.
