    I am thinking of converting one of my blazers to a 2wd, the doner(2wd swb truck) has rear leaf springs on it. that should be an easy swap, i hope. I want to keep the 6wheel lug pattern. The doner only has 5lug. Were/Are there any front 2wd 6lug wheel patterns out there for our generation. also the doner has front disc brakes.

    ARQ.

    Dennis, I've seen a couple of 2WD trucks in the yards that had 6 lug flanges on them. I can't rightly say that I have any clue as to what the difference in the truck would be from one with a set of 5 lug flanges...

    If its a 2wd and has 6 bolt hubs, then its a drum brake truck, there are no such thing as a 6 bolt 2wd disc brake truck.....
    There are aftermarket 6 bolt rotors made now.
    About 130 bucks a pair,....

    From what I am told, it is pretty straight forward. There is only one bolt that doesnt line up. I am planning on doing this, but I am converting the back to coil. By using the mid section and trailing arms out of a pickup as well.

    thanks all,

    I did want to do a strait out conversion from 4-2wd but wanted to keep the 6lug disk in front.
