    i've got some 10 bolt 8 lug hub's and rotors. you will need to find some spindles and backing plates....althought i belive that the 6 lug and 8 lug spindles and backing plates are the same. You can also convert a dana 44 6 lug to an 8 lug using the 10 bolt 8 lug hubs, spindles, bearing and backing plate.

    Spindle's are the same as long as they are the big bearing units,but the backing plates are bigger in diameter for the 8 lug.I have the stuff as well.

    if you are converting a 10 bolt all you will need is a set of big bearing hubs/rotors and backing plates(which are on all 10 bolt front and 76 or so up Dana 44's).The spindles,calipers,pads and even the wheel bearing's are the same.

    If you are converting a 72-76 or so Dana 44 you will probably need a set of small bearing hubs and spindles and the 8 lug backing plates.Everything else is the same.Despite what alot of people say there is a difference in the 6 lug and 8 lug backing plates.

    The first lesson is free.:D :D

    It's a '89 front end, so I need the hubs/rotors & backing plates, which you have, so I'm good to go with our deal?
